SCC Automotive Program Receives New Equipment


sccauto(January 29, 2013) The Automotive program at Stanly Community College (SCC) has some new metal working equipment, thanks to a recent grant from the Collectors Foundation.  This equipment includes tools used in the automotive repair and automotive restoration areas.

Metal fabrication and metal forming skills are needed for any type of automotive work in the collision industry or for those looking to enter the exciting field of restoration.  SCC now has English wheels, planishing hammers, bossing mallets, and aluminum to teach hands-on training for these skills.

There are many types of courses offered at SCC to expand your knowledge in this area – Auto Body Repair; Auto Body Restoration; Automotive Electrical and Carburetion; Automotive Engine Rebuilding; Automotive Metal Fabrication; Emissions Certification Training; Power Equipment and Small Engine Repair; Painting and Refinishing; and Vehicle Safety Training Inspection.

The Automotive program at SCC now offers training for the I-CAR certification.  I-CAR is the Inter-Industry Conference on Auto Collision Repair.  This is an international organization that develops and delivers technical training to professionals in all areas of the collision industry.  Last year, SCC formed an academic alliance with I-CAR as one of only six colleges in the state of NC to offer this training and certification.  There are only 259 facilities in the United States that have this academic alliance.

The equipment acquired from the Collectors Foundation will allow advanced technical training in all areas of Automotive Repair. The Collectors Foundation is an education grant-making organization founded by Hagerty Insurance and funded by collector vehicle and classic boat enthusiasts to serve youth development and the long-term interests of the collector vehicle and classic boat communities.
