You will learn how to select appropriate tools, equipment, and fillers, how to follow the correct procedures in doing so and how to work safely and avoid any damage to vehicles and their systems. This module will also help you to finish repairs to a suitable standard ready for the painting stage. This will be done by using the manufacturer’s approved methods of working. To assist you in your practice you will also be able to watch two videos which offer a step-by-step guide to carrying out repairs.

The module takes two hours to complete. After you have worked through the learning, you need to successfully answer a series of multiple-choice questions before being awarded a downloadable WorldSkills UK certificate.
