I-CAR Introduces Full-Frame Partial Replacement Training Course
March 12, 2014—I-CAR announced Tuesday that it has added a new live, instructor-led course to its catalog, Full-Frame Partial Replacement (FFR01).
The course provides information on OEM repair procedures and welding requirements for full-frame vehicles and covers several important collision repair topics that are critical to complete safe and quality repairs for the ultimate benefit of the consumer.
“Properly repairing today’s full-frame vehicles requires a command of an array of considerations. The content in this course can be applied on the job immediately following completion, resulting in increased savings for the shop and the vehicle owner alike,” explained Josh McFarlin, I-CAR Director of Curriculum & Product development.
Technicians will learn how to identify full-frame designs, partial replacement options and repair considerations for full-frame attachments during the course. They will also have access to HD-quality videos on full-frame partial replacement procedures for some of today’s most popular full-frame vehicles, including Ford F-150, General Motors 1500 frames, RAM 1500 and Jeep Wrangler.
This three-credit-hour course meets training requirements for Steel Structural Technicians, Auto Physical Damage Appraisers and Estimators in I-CAR’s Professional Development Program (PDP). FFR01 will replace Steel Full-Frame Sectioning (SPS03) and Steel Full-Frame Technologies and Repair (SPS08), resulting in three less credit hours of training for certain repair professionals. Anyone who has previously taken either SPS03 or SPS08 will not lose training credit that has been earned.
