Sept. 3, 2019—The Collision Repair Education Foundation (CREF) is partnering with the Montana Collision Repair Association (MCRA) to support the state's collision repair training program.

Montana State University in  Billings is the only school providing pre-employment training in the state. Through the partnership, the MCRA and the Education Foundation will raise funds to provide the school and its students with:

  • Hand tools 
  • Aluminum repair tools/equipment
  • New frame rack
  • Student scholarships
  • Epoxied program floors
  • Student work uniforms

Steven Wodrich, the collision instructor at MSU-Billings, said, “When I took over the program, most of the tools were in need of repair, replacement, or were obsolete. It has been a struggle to get all the tools I have needed to make my program current. I have worked very hard at finding donations and grants and have been able to update many of our tools but still have a long way to go to be completely current.”
