I-CAR Launches New Courses
Jan. 5, 2016—On Monday, I-CAR announced that it has launched three new courses for the first quarter of 2016. The new courses available are MIG brazing, rivet bonding, and Honda and Acura electrical system repair.
The MIG brazing and rivet bonding courses are a part of I-CAR’s new Hands-On Skills Development program, a new line of courses that are hands-on and conducted in-shop. The electrical system repair course is the fourth installment of an online series focused on Honda and Acura vehicles.
MIG Brazing Hands-On Skills Development (BRZ02): Offers collision repair technicians a critical opportunity to develop their MIG brazing skills in their own shop environment. This technique is becoming a requirement for many high-strength steel (HSS) vehicles entering the market, making it a skill that technicians need to know. As a result of taking this course, technicians will have the knowledge and hands-on practice to consistently produce quality MIG brazing repairs.
Rivet Bonding Hands-On Skills Development (RVT01): Introduces technicians to an attachment method that is quickly becoming more common as more vehicles are built using aluminum, steel and mixed materials, such as North America’s best-selling vehicle the 2015 Ford F-150. Rivet bonding requires careful timing and an organized approach making one-on-one coaching with the instructor an important component of the course. Technicians who complete the course gain knowledge and skills they can immediately put to use in their shops.
Honda & Acura Electrical Collision Repair (HON14e): The course empowers facilities to ensure that sublet repairs are done properly. The course is divided into three sections that highlight basic electrical system requirements, potential wiring harness issues, and Honda and Acura wiring repair policies, tools and resources.
All three courses are available today. To learn more about the courses, visit I-CAR’s website.
