April 26, 2016—Chief University, the training arm of Chief Automotive Technologies, on Monday announced its updated curriculum for 2016.

Chief University will offer over 60 updated training classes for technicians, estimators and insurance appraisers across North America this year.

Chief University’s newest course, Aluminum Damage Analysis and Repair Technology, covers aluminum forming methods and metal characteristics, as well as damage analysis, repair decisions and techniques for working with aluminum. The Design Based Repair course features instruction on the proper metal identification and subsequent repair methods required due to the advanced high-strength steels and structural aluminum introduced by the manufacturers. Both courses have been updated to cover the advanced metals and construction methods currently used by OEMs, so trainees are prepared for any vehicle that may come to their shops.

Significant upgrades have been made to Chief University’s Computerized Measuring Training class to make it more user-friendly for technicians. In this class, technicians learn how to properly use Chief's LaserLock laser-mapping and Vector computerized measuring systems to identify structural misalignment and maximize both repair quality and profitability.
