What Students Say

Students value the program’s hands-on approach:

"The teachers have a lot of hands-on experience, and the hands-on practice makes you learn. The book work is important, but until you do it, you won't know how auto body repair is done."
Elvin Escobar, 2010 graduate

"My passion is working with cars. I started this program as a hobby, but now I want to do it as a career. CLC's program has helped me to understand pretty much everything about automotive collision repair."
