Addendum to Course Description

This is an outcome-based course using a lecture/lab format. This course includes classroom discussions, videotapes, and lab demonstrations covering technical skills. Course outcomes will include structural part design, three types of sectioning joints, MIG welding, resistance spot welding, corrosion protection, safety and environmental awareness, communication, computations and human relations. This course is required for a Two-year Certificate or an Associate Degree in Auto Collision Repair.

Intended Outcomes for the course

Upon successful completion of this course students should be able to:
· communicate effectively with employers, coworkers and customers, adapting to feedback as it pertains to terminology, processes and skills of
auto collision repair and professional workplace behavior.
· work safely in the auto collision repair industry and apply a proper understanding of the use of advanced welding equipment and tools, products and chemicals and how those items affect the local and global environment.
· identify and implement strategies and processes to solve workplace and vehicle repair problems, access and utilize repair information in a rapidly
changing technology.
· apply necessary computation skills effectively as they pertain to auto collision repair.
· use an understanding of variation in culture and human interactions to working within the team environment in the auto collision repair industry.
· apply the weldon panel replacement knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary to work within the ethical and professional parameters of the auto
collision repair profession, with limited supervision.

Computation
Hours: 30

Outcomes: 

1. apply necessary computation skills effectively as they pertain to auto collision repair.
 

Activities:

· students will build mock frame rails according to specific dimensional guide lines that include multiple bends areas and proper angles.
· measure and cut the three required splices, butt weld without backing, butt weld with backing and an offset lap weld.
· measuring dimensions, metal thickness,(gage), wire speed rates, voltage settings during welding.
· determine the severity of damaged vehicles using the proper measuring equipment depending on the damage; measuring tape, tram gage, universal
measuring system or the computerized measuring system.
· write collision estimates that include adding, subtracting, and multiplying for parts and materials costs, labor calculations, and overlapping operations.

Communication
Hours: 28

Outcomes:

1. communicate effectively with employers, coworkers and customers, adapting to feedback as it pertains to terminology, processes and skills of
auto collision repair and professional workplace behavior.
2. identify and implement strategies and processes to solve workplace and vehicle repair problems, access and utilize repair information in a rapidly
changing technology.
 

Activities:

· writing collision damage estimates using collision estimating guides that include parts descriptions, repair procedures, included and non included
operations.
· required reading of 54 pages in the text book €œAuto Body Repair Technology€
· answering chapter review and ASE style questions and students reading some of those answers aloud in class.
· students will fill out safety sheets and write a repair plan.
· write summaries of the repairs, explaining the techniques that were used during the repair, measuring system, types of welds, size of welds and the type of corrosion protection that was applied.
· presenting oral evaluations of any challenges and/or problems or items learned that they experienced from shop labs from the previous day.
· students explain technical terminology definitions when called on during classroom time or within their shop lab team.
 

Human Relations
Hours: 140

Outcomes:

1. use an understanding of variation in culture and human interactions to working within the team environment in the auto collision repair industry.
2. apply the weldon panel replacement knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary to work within the ethical and professional parameters of the auto
collision repair profession, with limited supervision.

Activities:

· students learn about team concepts and cultural awareness through class room presentation and dialogue
