Automotive Collision Repair

AUCR 100 – 4 Credits
Fundamentals of Collision Repair and Safety

Instructs students in collision repair shop operations and safety. The course emphasizes the study of procedures, methods, and operations, that are specific and unique to the collision repair industry. Emphasis is also placed on the study of current trends emerging in the collision repair industry. 3 lecture hours and 3 laboratory hours per week.

Prerequisites: ENGL 052 or ESOL 052 and RDNG 052 or ESOL 054; or ACLT 052 and MATH 082 Lab fee:$40.00

AUCR 101 – 5 Credits
non-Structural Analysis and Repair I

Demonstrates the procedures for removing, repairing, replacing, and adjusting of outer body panels. It teaches the straightening and roughing out of damaged steel panels and how to prepare them for body filter. Students implement the special precautions needed to repair aluminum panels. Students study the proper replacement of corrosion protection to the repaired panels and adjustment of panels for proper fit. Students apply the theory to cutting and welding of steel. The learning process focuses on group interaction, group activities, the study of the industry's best practices, and the application of assessment tools. The course provides students a broad knowledge of shop and personal safety practices and helps them develop safe and healthy practices for themselves, their fellow workers, and the environment. 3 lecture hours and 6 laboratory hours per week. NOTE: Courses offered once a year (fall or spring).

Prerequisite: AUCR 100 Lab fee: $40.00

AUCR 102 – 5 Credits
Structural Analysis and Damage Repair I

Provides a theoretical study of structural collision damage, its analysis and repair. The course emphasizes the proper procedures for measuring, analyzing, and developing correct repair procedures for unibody and body-over-frame vehicles. Students develop repair plans and discuss their implementation. The course also emphasizes the restoring of vehicles to their pre-accident condition using manufacturers' and industry recommendations. 3 lecture hours and 6 laboratory hours per week. NOTE: Courses offered once a yar (fall or spring).

Prerequisite: AUCR 100

AUCR 103 – 5 Credits
Collision Painting and Refinishing I

Prepares students to apply the theoretical aspects of automotive refinishing. This course provides technical information for safety, both personal and environmental, as well as information for proper surface preparation, application techniques and equipment usage. Students gain knowledge in the proper selection and application of undercoating needed for proper long-term durability. 3 lecture hours and 6 laboratory hours per week.

Prerequisite: AUCR 101

AUCR 104 – 5 Credits
Mechanical Components Repair I

Covers the basic principles of automotive mechanical and electrical components. Topics include suspension and steering, electrical systems, brake systems, heating and air conditioning, cooling systems, and drive tran. Emphasis is placed on personal and environmental safety. 3 lecture hours and 6 laboratory hours per week. NOTE: Courses offered once a year (fall or spring).

Prerequisite: AUCR 100

AUCR 113 – 5 Credits
Collision Repair and Refinishing II

Provides a theoretical study of structural collision damage, its analysis and repair. The course emphasizes the proper procedures for measuring, analyzing and developing correct repair procedures for unibody and body-over-frame vehicles. Students develop repair plans and discuss their implementation. The course also emphasizes the restoring of vehicles to their pre-accident condition using manufacturers' and industry recommendations. 3 lecture hours and 6 laboratory hours per week.

Prerequisite: AUCR 100

AUCR 201 – 5 Credits
Non-Structural Analysis and Damage Repair II

Develops a broader knowledge in both theory and application of vehicle repair procedures. Student technicians practice the repair of body panels using hammer and dolly; heat and cold shrinking techniques; and the proper mixing, application, shaping, and finish sanding of body filler. The course also provides practical application in forming and smoothing filled areas and repairing scratches and nicks. The course provides a broad exposure to the identification and repair procedures needed to remove and replace interior components and parts. 3 lecture hours and 6 laboratory hours per week. NOTE: Courses offered once a year (fall or spring).

Prerequisite: AUCR 101

AUCR 202 – 5 Credits
Structural Analysis and Damage Repair II

Places emphasis on the application of structural collision damage repair. The course covers the application of procedures such as measuring, analyzing damaged unibody and body-over-frame vehicles, repairing damaged and misaligned vehicles, inspection, removal and replacement of parts or sections of a vehicle which may be unsafe for repair. The course also emphasizes restoring of corrosion protection. Student technicians practice applying, measuring, and analyzing damaged vehicles then implementing a repair plan to restore vehicles to their pre-accident condition using manufacturers' and industry recommendations. 3 lecture hours and 6 laboratory hours per week. NOTE: Courses offered once a year (fall or spring).

Prerequisite: AUCR 102

AUCR 203 – 5 Credits
Collision Painting and Refinishing III

Covers the theoretical aspects of advanced automotive refinishing. This course provides technical information in the proper selection of single stage topcoats, base coats, clear coats, and multi-coat finishes. Student technicians learn to identify and explain the repair procedures for common defects which occur in collision refinishing. Safety is emphasized. 3 lecture hours and 6 laboratory hours per week.

Prerequisite: AUCR 113
