Josh’s Answer

Getting a certification through a technical college is always a good choice. More often than not, the tuition might be less expensive than a 4-year university. Class times might also be offered after any work hours which helps you work while going to school. Any education or formal training you can do will better your career and help you standout from any other applicant.

Robert’s Answer

Mason,

You would probably want to either attend a community college or technical school that offers a collision repair program if you have no experience. Another option would be to find an employer that offers an apprentice type program where you are able to learn on the job. Since this is more of a specialized skill you probably do not need an associate or bachelors, either a certification or training should suffice. Hope this helps.

Sandra’s Answer

You might want to look into Vocational colleges, Are you familiar with vocational programs. However they tend to be high in tuition costs if not qualified for financial aid. The difference between vocational and community college is that vocational is focused only on the profession you are interested in and because of that programs shorter and they also do hands on training and most offer placement for internship. Colleges are not, which gives you the opportunity to always change career profession if you still haven't made up your min, as for tuition its usually less however school is longer.

Galdino’s Answer

Becoming certified either through a technical college or certification would be the best bet. You can always start with experience but down the line more opportunities will present itself with certification to show to others.
