  • Describe basic metallurgy and its impact on the collision repair industry
  • Explain how the use of new materials used in vehicles relates to collision repair dynamics
  • Understand why vehicle makers are moving toward advanced high-strength steels
  • Identify the repair considerations for advanced high-strength steels and new vehicle construction processes

Module 1 – Steel Strength and Unitized Structures Repair
This module explains the new types of steels used in unitized vehicle structures. The student will learn about the mechanical properties of some of the new, advanced high-strength steels and how typical repair processes can affect steel strength.

Module 2 – New Construction Processes
In this module, the student will learn objectives for identifying new construction processes used in steel unitized structures such as tailor welding and multiple layer construction. The student will also examine how new construction processes have altered traditional repair procedures.
