He successfully owned and managed his own repair shop for 20 years, then went on to work for some of the area’s best collision shops.

Mr. Schuster's goals as an instructor are focused on the belief that you, as a student must feel comfortable and confident as you learn the evolving technologies of today’s repair shop.
