Auto Collision Repair open house a real hit
Photos and Story by Janis Nichols
The second annual Auto Collision Repair Program open house on May 13 at the PCC Rock Creek Campus was a combination of the old, the restored and the possible. Approximately 125 people wandered through the shop, including a group of students who met auto shop owners and vendors looking for people to hire.
Representatives from some of Portland’s largest auto repair shops were on hand including Kadel’s Auto Body, Mackin’s, Artistic Auto Body, Precision Body & Paint, Fix Auto Collision, Tualatin Auto Body So-Cal North West and Cross Road Customs. The vendors included NAPA, Snap-on, 3M, Mo-Clamp, Axalta, Industrial Finishes and DJs Fabrications. The Auto Collision Repair Program’s students are trained on state-of-the-art auto paint booths and a virtual painting system. Constructed in 2013, the $225,000 upgrade means graduates are exceptionally employable in a competitive job market.
