Collision Repair Instructor Summer Training Program

The application period for the 2024 summer sessions has closed.

However, the 3M Automotive Aftermarket Division is excited to announce that we will again offer Collision Repair Instructor Training during the summer of 2025.  


  • We are hosting two sessions:

    • July 14th – July 18th, 2025
      (with an arrival on Sunday, July 13th)
    • August 4th – August 13th, 2025
      (with an arrival on Sunday, August 3rd)
    Please review the Course Information Booklet for detailed information regarding this training. 3M will cover all basic expenses for this event including meals, lodging, and local transportation within the Twin Cities. Please note that we are unable to cover the cost of air transportation – this will be the responsibility of the attendee or their school.

    If you are interested in attending one of this year’s summer sessions, please fill out the form to nominate yourself and apply for the program. Entries will be accepted until April 25th, 2025. Attendees will be selected and notified by May 9th, 2025.

    Additional Information

    Be sure to obtain pre-approval from your school regarding the above dates and air travel costs. 3M will cover remaining expenses while you’re our guest.

    Be on the lookout for future communications from 3M on these sessions. If you are selected to participate in one of this year’s sessions, we will contact you to confirm your attendance and gather additional information by June 13th, 2025. Further details will be communicated as appropriate after that.

    Due to the popularity of this program, if you or another instructor from your school have attended this training before, we’ll accept your application, and you will be kept as an alternate. Your submission will be considered after we determine participation from first-time attendees.

    If you have questions about the program or application process, please contact Jason Scharton at 651-217-3963 OR 3MCollisionRepairAcademy@mmm.com.
