Surry Community Offering Automotive Classes in May
Surry Community College is offering several classes in May for those interested in working in, or advancing their careers in, the automotive industry.
An Auto Safety Inspection – Initial Certification and Renewal class will be offered on Monday, May 1 and Wednesday, May 3 from 6 to 10 p.m. in Room V-113 of Surry Community College, 630 S. Main St., Dobson. This eight-hour course prepares auto technicians and service personnel as safety inspectors for motor vehicles. The course covers regulations and test inspection procedures and is taught to insure that the student understands the rules and regulations, can inspect a vehicle properly, and can successfully pass qualification exams for certification as a safety inspector at a licensed inspection station. Pre-registration and pre-payment of $71 are required.
Automobile Collison Repair and Refinishing (Auto Body Repair and Restoration) classes will be held in three sessions beginning in May. Students can choose to meet May 22 through Aug. 7 on Mondays and Tuesdays from 6 to 10 p.m.; May 22 through Aug. 7 on Mondays from 8 to 11 a.m. and Wednesdays from 8 a.m. to noon; or May 23 through Aug. 3 on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8 a.m. to noon. The course will prepare individuals to apply technical knowledge and skills to repair, reconstruct, and finish automobile bodies, fenders, and external features. Many students take the class in order to save money by working on their own automobile refinishing projects using the vast array of high quality equipment available at the college rather than buying expensive equipment for themselves. All class sessions will be held in the Auto Body Shop in Building B at Surry Community College, 630 S. Main St., Dobson. Pre-registration and pre-payment of $183 are required.
A Small Engine Repair course will be offered on Mondays and Wednesdays, May 22 through Aug. 7 from 6 to 9 p.m. in the Automotive Shop in Building V at Surry Community College, 630 S. Main St., Dobson. An emphasis will be placed on the proper use of tools and testing equipment. Upon completion, students will be able to explain operating principles of engines, name major parts of engines, work safely in the shop, and troubleshoot, service and repair various configurations of small engines. Pre-registration and pre-payment of $183 are required.
