Do you like working on cars? Want to get into the workforce quickly? Saskatchewan Polytechnic’s Auto Body Technician program could be a great fit for you. The program prepares you for work in auto body shops, auto dealerships and private garages.


The job involves bending, standing and lifting heavy equipment. But it’s also creative work—a good eye for colour and detail will ensure your skills are in demand.

Auto Body Technician is a one-year certificate program offered on campus in Saskatoon and in Regina.

Note: The Regina (January) delivery of this program is marketed almost exclusively to international students with a study permit, although it may be available to domestic students as well. 

The Auto Body Technician program at Saskatchewan Polytechnic gives you a solid foundation in the knowledge and skills you’ll need to work in motor vehicle body repair and refinishing. You’ll get practical training in:

  • basic and advanced metal work;
  • basic and advanced painting;
  • benchwork and safe working procedures;
  • door servicing, glass installation and electrical systems;
  • front sheet metal and plastic material repair;
  • industry communications and math;
  • welding.

Hands-On Learning

You’ll learn from experienced instructors and get practical experience in Saskatchewan Polytechnic’s well-equipped auto body shops. You’ll hammer out dings, paint a vehicle, install a glass windshield, align a bumper and more. You’ll also spend two weeks in an auto body repair shop getting a first-hand taste of the job.
