I always wanted to paint cars, and I thought this would be a great class to learn how to do it. In the Auto Collision Technology program, I get to learn something new everyday — things that I wouldn’t traditionally learn, and I love that. Working on cars makes me happy and I get to do it with a diverse group of people at TCTC.
