I-CAR announces new Ford collision repair training program
Aug. 25, 2011 — I-CAR recently announced it will launch a new instructor-led training course focused on Ford’s vehicle-specific parts and repair procedures.
The I-CAR course, Collision Repair for Ford and Lincoln Vehicles (FOR05), was developed by I-CAR in conjunction with the Ford Paint & Body Technology Center. The course will debut in September 2011.
The course provides information on service and parts for Ford and Lincoln vehicles, including collision repair position statements, different construction materials, vehicle features and repair considerations. Additionally, information on electrical and mechanical systems that are specific to Ford vehicles and preparing parts for corrosion protection coatings and refinishing procedures will also be covered in the course.
“The ability for I-CAR to develop and deliver Ford-specific training helps support the collision industry by providing an overview of key topics that are relevant to individuals who repair Ford and Lincoln vehicles,” said Bill Stage, director of marketing and distribution for I-CAR. “I-CAR is glad to have established its relationship with Ford Paint & Body Technology Center and believes that individuals working in the collision industry will be better positioned to provide Ford vehicle owners with a complete and safe repair. Proper training on Ford vehicles will help repairers reduce the possibility of rework and maintain the overall integrity of the vehicle.”
