OYAP Programs

Auto Body, Collision and Refinishing

The Auto Body OYAP focuses on both Collision Damage Repair Technician and Automotive Painter. It is a program specifically designed to help students make a smooth successful transition from high school directly into their post-secondary Auto Body and Collision Damage Repair Technician apprenticeship. It is also the best course offered in our high schools to prepare students for a career as an Automotive Painter apprentice.

The OYAP Auto Body / Collision Repair Program focuses on:
Repairing and replacing automotive panels, proper refinishing and re-painting techniques, proper surface preparation, gaining an understanding of various auto design structures, proper health and safety techniques, the use of industry standard equipment and new technologies (waterborne paint), and developing employability skills

Similar apprenticeship preparation certificate programs are also offered at local community colleges which can cost $2,500 or more.
