The East Valley Institute of Technology has been awarded a $20,000 grant by the RPM Foundation to start a new collector vehicle restoration program at the Dr. A. Keith Crandell (Main) Campus, 1601 W. Main St., Mesa.

Adult Education @ EVIT will begin offering Classic Automotive Restoration this fall. Starting date will be announced soon. The evening class will meet on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays over eight months.

Students will receive 310 hours of training in automotive restoration, materials handling and safety practices. Through a mix of classroom lectures, lab and shop activities, students will acquire the skills and knowledge to restore and maintain classic vehicles.

Classic Automotive Restoration will cover safety practices, history of auto restoration, gasoline engine maintenance, chassis/driver trains, basic welding, body preparation, painting, refinishing and interiors. Tuition is $2,250 and program fees are $800. EVIT offers affordable payment plans for adult students.

To enroll, students must have a high school diploma or GED and proficiency in basic reading and math.
