Presentation combines classroom lecture, visual aids, and hands-on exercises. This program is performance-based; students perform practice estimates on each section of the vehicle (front, side, and rear impacts on outer body components). Each practice estimate is reviewed by the instructor at the vehicle, culminating in a graded test estimate.

Pre-written estimates are reviewed for content and accuracy.

Graduates of this program will be able to perform damage estimates on outer body panels of cars, light trucks, vans and SUV’s, and recognize signs of structural misalignment and damage to the most commonly damaged mechanical systems. Those charged with reviewing pre-written estimates from a remote location will gain tremendous effectiveness through hands on identification of vehicle parts and systems, and experiencing the estimating process. This includes engine and suspension system, component repair, structural realignment, vehicle identification, and basic estimating information.

Students learn how to calculate sheet metal and aluminum repair time.
