Feb. 26, 2018—AASP-NJ announced that I-CAR will be hosting three events over the course of the weekend at NORTHEAST 2018.

On Saturday, March 17, from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. Michael Bonsanto and Peter Fryzel of I-CAR will be presenting Squeeze-Type Resistance Spot Welding. This class will show attendees just how effective spot welding is for minimizing the heat-effect zone, as more and more vehicles are manufactured with high-strength and ultra high-strength steel.

Bonsanto and Fryzel will also discuss the countless other benefits of spot welding for attaching body panels and components, among which are decreased damage to corrosion protection and replication of production weld appearance. Registration is required; to register, visit

I-CAR will also be offering two sessions on the Washington Metropolitan Auto Body Association-produced Collision P.R.E.P. Free Stage—one on Friday night and one on Sunday morning.

Allan Smith will be presenting I-CAR Training & Welding Technology Today, a session to help attendees jump start Gold Class training. This class will focus on the In-Shop Knowledge Assessment Program, and will also discuss the Reparability and Technical Support Information Portal on the I-CAR website.

Fryzel will be presenting MIG Brazing & Rivet Bonding, where attendees will learn today's technology for tomorrow's vehicles, as well as discuss why continued training goes hand-in-hand with completing a safe and proper repair.

Both sessions are available to attendees on Friday, March 16, from 8:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday, March 18, from 11:45 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on the Collision P.R.E.P. Free Stage in the NORTHEAST Pavilion.

AASP/NJ's NORTHEAST 2018 Automotive Services Show will be held March 16-18, 2018 at the Meadowlands Exposition Center in Secaucus, NJ. For more information, and to pre-register for free today, visit
