Automobile Collision Repairers
Technology demands more from the collision repairer than it did
10 years ago. In addition to automotive and shop classes, high
school students should take mathematics, English, and computer
classes. Adjustments and repairs to many car components require
numerous computations, for which good mathematics skills are
essential. Reading comprehension skills will help a collision
repairer understand complex repair manuals and trade journals that
detail new technology. Oral communication skills are also important
to help customers understand their options. In addition, computers
are common in most collision repair shops. They keep track of
customer histories and parts and often detail repair procedures.
Use of computers in repair shops will only increase in the future,
so students will benefit from a basic knowledge of them.
