Collision repair programs focus on attention to detail and the importance of a quality repair. With the guidance of Okanagan College's Red Seal certified instructors, students gain practical experience with the latest equipment and increase confidence with an industry work placement included in the entry level training program.

Cassidy talks about how she started in the trade, her experience working in the  industry from a female perspective and her future career plans.
