I-CAR Updates Steering and Suspension Course
April 8, 2014—I-CAR announced on Monday that its Steering and Suspension Damage Analysis (DAM06) course now includes a series of interactive classroom activities and updated repair information.
“This course provides an understanding of steering and suspension repair considerations that can help eliminate the chance of compromising the vehicle’s integrity during the repair and reduce comebacks,” said Josh McFarlin, I-CAR director of curriculum and product development. “Content included in this course is beneficial to repairers, business owners and ultimately consumers.”
During the course, students will gain an overview of steering and suspension systems and parts. They will also have the opportunity to analyze certain issues such as caster, camber and toe. Other content—including understanding ride height difference and additional inspection methods, plus how to use alignment angle readings—are covered in DAM06. Students will participle in multiple activities throughout the course, including an interactive alignment activity where they will determine alignment angles.
The instructor-led, three-credit-hour course meets training requirements for Estimators and Auto Physical Damage Appraisers in I-CAR’s Professional Development Program (PDP).
