VCC launches Automotive Collision and Refinishing Foundation program

August 30, 2021
Vancouver Community College has launched a new Automotive Collision and Refinishing Foundation program. The program combines material from two formerly distinct programs: automotive collision repair and automotive refinishing prep. The overlap between the former programs has been eliminated, and students will be introduced to both fields before they choose their specializations. The new program will be recognized across provinces to enable students to complete apprenticeships in different locations. “These students will have a better understanding of both sides of the trade and be more successful on any path they take,” said VCC Automotive Collision and Refinishing department head Keith Mew.
