Are you interested in manual work? Do you have an eye for detail and colour? Why not pursue a career as a Vehicle Paint Technician?
What does a Vehicle Paint Technician do ?
When vehicles are damaged in accidents, they are taken to a body repair workshop. Paint technicians are responsible for preparing vehicles to be painted after damage has occurred or panels have been replaced. This will include repairing minor scratches to match the rest of the vehicle.
What does the training involve?
The best foundation for a career in a body shop is through an apprenticeship. You will learn and earn at the same time with much of your practical experience coming from supervised work in the body shop itself. You will attend technical college on day release.
What will I achieve?
An Institute of Motor Industry Intermediate Level Apprenticeship in Body Refinishing (Paint) - Consisting of a Vocational Qualification, Technical Certificate and Functional Skills. You can then progress onto an Advanced Level Apprenticeship.
