Program Information

Courses are organized in sections so that those who wish to study in one particular area may do so. Classes are taken by students seeking certification and also by those who are already employed in the field and want to upgrade their skills. The program's advisory committee is comprised of industry professionals who respond to current industry trends by updating the competency-based curriculum.

Students develop skills in unibody collision repair, high technology finishes, touch up and detailing through classroom discussions and applied lab and shop practices. The program focuses on modern technologies such as unibody structural repair as well as multi-stage finish repair.

Gifts of Automobiles and Auto Repair Equipment

In some cases the South Seattle College Automotive program is willing to accept gifts of used, recent-model automobiles and related instructional equipment. Some restored vehicles are kept as educational tools; others are sold to raise money for scholarships or other purposes. Currently, the program is in need of newer vehicles with computer-controlled systems and up-to-date shop equipment, supplies and hand tools. 

For more information on gifts of automobiles and equipment, and to determine whether a particular automobile is a good fit to our curriculum needs please contact the South Seattle College Foundation at (206) 934-5809 or email
