I-CAR Training Aids Collision Repairers
The collision repair industry faces a Technical Tsunami™ due to the continuing rapid pace of vehicle technology and material advancements. While most shops recognize that ongoing training should be a priority to maintain their knowledge and skills, they aren’t sure where to start.
That’s where I-CAR® can assist. One of the best ways to start the process is to sign up for an I-CAR In-Shop Knowledge Assessment™. This onsite assessment in your shop provides immediate feedback that recognizes knowledge gaps and provides a customized training program for employees. From there, you will have the information needed to place your shop on an accelerated path to Gold Class® shop recognition and enable your technicians to achieve and maintain the coveted Platinum™ designation.
I-CAR is constantly improving the many education programs we offer in order to meet the collision repair industry’s needs. As an example, we continue adding to our Hands-On Skills Development™ program, in which an I-CAR instructor comes to your shop and trains your staff in specific subject areas.
To keep technicians up-to-date on the latest developments in vehicle technology, I-CAR offers more than 30 courses focusing on new technology. Diagnostics remains an important area in repair shops across the country, and I-CAR has developed training specific to diagnostic tools and how to use them to identify and repair damage to vehicles involved in a collision. I-CAR’s Welding Training and Certification™ is also the industry standard for many insurance and OEM repair networks.
Finally, the I-CAR Repairability and Technical Support™ (RTS) portal provides a wealth of technical information and resources. Visit the portal at RTS.I-CAR.com.
With so many changes occurring so quickly in the collision repair industry, it’s more important than ever that you deliver complete, safe and quality repairs to your customers. Look to I-CAR to help you accomplish this mission.
