Do you like working on cars? Do you want to get into the workforce quickly? Saskatchewan Polytechnic's Automotive Painter program could be a great fit for you. The program prepares you to work in auto body shops, auto dealerships, and the manufacturing sector. The job involves a lot of movement and an eye for detail and colour. The ability to organize multiple tasks will make you a valuable asset in the workplace.
You will learn from experienced instructors and get practical experience in Sask Polytech's well-equipped shops. You will dismantle and assemble vehicles, hammer out small dings, prepare, prime and refinish vehicle panels, and repair paint defects. You will also spend a week in an auto body shop testing your newly acquired skills.
Automotive Painting is a 16-week applied certificate that gives you a solid foundation in the knowledge and skills you will need to work in automotive painting.
For more information, contact Carol Krawczyk at firstname.lastname@example.org.
With this Saskatchewan Polytechnic credential, you may be eligible for credit towards apprenticeship training. To learn more, contact the Saskatchewan Apprenticeship and Trade Certification Commission (SATCC).
When you graduate, you'll be ready for entry-level positions in auto body repair shops, private garages, paint shops and large commercial fleets. Automotive painters don't just paint, they perform a variety of tasks when it comes to painting. You could find yourself specializing in painting, prepping, detailing, and troubleshooting defects.
Go for your journeyperson's ticket as an Automotive Painter and you'll find opportunities with paint manufacturers, and appraisal centres. You could also start your own auto body repair business.

ACCUPLACER©Not applicable at this time
The First Qualified/First Admitted (FQFA) process is used for the majority of Saskatchewan Polytechnic programs. When we determine that you meet the program's admission requirements, you will be offered admission based on the date you fully qualify for the program. The earlier you provide the appropriate documents and information that qualify you for admission to the next intake, the earlier you might begin your studies. Your application, once qualified, is always considered for the next intake.
Applicants to programs with multiple intakes in an academic year remain in the application pool until the last intake for that academic year has begun. Programs using the FQFA process receive applications year round and maintain an application pool for each academic year. Qualified applicants who are not offered a seat must reapply for the next academic year.
Sponsored programs or programs targeted to specific groups do not accept applications year round or maintain an application pool.
See Admission Processes for more information about this method of admission.
