COVID-19: Spring 2023 Semester Guidelines

Collision Repair Students Successful on I-CAR


Surry Community College’s Collision Repair & Refinishing students completed their first I-CAR certification in February with a 100-percent pass rate.

I-CAR (Inter-Industry Conference on Auto Collision Repair) is an international not-for-profit organization dedicated to providing the information, knowledge and skills required to perform complete, safe and quality repairs. I-CAR's focus is to provide access to high quality, industry recognized training solutions.

The I-CAR curriculum is new at SCC for spring of 2021. Collision Repair & Refinishing students will have the opportunity to earn 24 certifications while enrolled in the program. These certifications will help the students when seeking employment in the collision industry.

Phillip Hopkins, Lead Instructor of SCC’s Collision Repair & Refinishing program, said, “I am very proud of the work these students have accomplished so far this semester, and with the 100% pass rate for their first certification. The goal of using this curriculum is to build a solid foundation of collision repair techniques that they can build upon for their careers.”

The Collision Repair & Refinishing Program at SCC offers students the opportunity to pursue a diploma or certificate. For more information, go to or contact Phillip Hopkins at (336) 386-3623 or
