I-CAR offers Corvette ZR1 training course
August 26, 2011 – I-CAR on Friday announced it will offer a three-and-a-half day hands-on Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 training course.
The training course will provide individuals with the same training that Corvette ZR1 certified collision repair technicians receive. Students will enhance their knowledge and skills in aluminum vehicle repair by performing sectioning activities and hands-on welding and riveting repairs on Corvette ZR1 space frames.
The training will be held at the I-CAR Tech Centre in Appleton, Wis. Sept. 13-30. More dates will be added in October and November, according to I-CAR.
“Vehicle makers are continually looking for ways to lighten vehicle structures and there is a strong likelihood that the industry will see more aluminum-intensive vehicles,” said Jason Bartanen, technical director at I-CAR. “The I-CAR Corvette ZR1 course offers a tremendous opportunity for repairers to receive a premier training experience, as well as earn credit toward the I-CAR Platinum Individual designation.”
Students will meet the requirements for the 2011 I-CAR ProLevel 1 Aluminum Structural Technician role, as defined in the I-CAR Professional Development Program, following successful completion of the training. Registration is open to the public on a first-come, first-served basis.
