Auto Body Refinishing at SVCTE


Silicon Valley Career Technical Education
center — a STEAM High School program — gives students hands-on work experience with real
cars in the AUTO BODY REFINISHING program. Students use the same equipment as professional
shops. They learn to prepare surfaces for refinishing, setting up and operating pressure
spray equipment, and detail vehicles. Instruction includes OSHA safety regulations,
recognition of paint defects, and how to correct the finish. Students are prepared to work
in local body shops and dealerships as an apprentice. Class exercises help students
develop essential skills in vehicle preparation. Eligible students gain work experience in
body shops that are iCar and A.S.E. certified. Locally, these include: Blossom Valley Collision,
Fix Auto, Anderson Behel Body Shop, and Service King.
