This apprenticeship is for those who want to learn how to apply paint and finishes to a vehicle that has been repaired by the vehicle body repairer. You will become brilliant at recognising the various materials used on vehicles and the prep needed to be done before applying the paints and finishes. It’s a skilled job and you’ll also be taught how to estimate costs accurately as well as given a thorough briefing in health and safety.
Apprenticeships develop an extensive range of practical skills which include:
Paint technicians are the people responsible for preparing vehicles to be painted after damage has occurred or panels have been replaced after an accident. This will include repairing minor scratches to match the rest of the vehicle.
Duties of a paint technician may include:
There are two levels of apprenticeship. Intermediate (Level 2) will gain you a semi-qualified status. The Advanced (Level 3) Apprenticeship and will give you a fully qualified status.
Trainee: Body Refinisher/Painter
When vehicles are damaged in accidents they are taken to a body repair workshop. Here they will have specialist body repair and refinish technicians who specialise in repairing or replacing damaged panels.
As a body refinishing apprentice you could work in an independent garage, a particular manufacturer or dealership. You will need a work placement where you will complete the majority of your time and assessments. You will attend Lincoln College one day each week to complete theory and practical training.
Integral to the level 2 qualification and important to your progression within the trade are features that include:
Level 2 - 2 years day release from work placement
Level 3 - 1 year day release from work placement
