EMPLOYMENT OUTLOOK

  • Automobile body repair, painting and refinishing work is carried on in every community.  Due to the current growth in production and body complexities there is a continued edmand for workers in the field.  A student taking the course at either of the career and technical education centers should qualify as an auto body repairman.  The employment outlook is extremely good due to the fact that many people today are repairing their old cars rather than purchasing new ones.  Students should be prepared to travel outside the immediate geographic area.  It should be noted that while a one-year program will limit employment opportunities, a two year program will provide a solid foundation for many job opportunities.
