Opportunities abound in Automotive Collision Repair. There's no debate about this simple point.

Automotive Collision Repair is nationally accredited by the National Automotive Technicians' Educational Foundation (NATEF). Students are encouraged to successfully complete two years. Subsequently, they may attain ASE certification in auto collision repair through testing, which will provide them with both the skills and certification needed to enter the auto collision industry and launch a successful career.

Regarding technician demand.....according to TechForce Foundation's 2021 Supply & Demand Report, demand for technicians nearly doubled in the past year-from 136,503 to 258,000 in 2021.  Last year demand outpaced by nearly three to one; now it is estimated to be five to one.

According to FenderBender Magazine, between 2022 and 2025, there will be a demand for more than 60,000 new collision repair technicians.  In 2022, that number was more than 18,000 technicians needed.

NEACTC training is provided in automotive refinish, nonstructural repair, structural repair, damage analysis and estimating, and welding.  Students can expect to learn basic skills, procedures and terms associated with all these types of automotive collision repairs.
