SCRS’ RDE Program Sees Increased Registration
Sept. 19, 2013—The Society of Collision Repair Specialists (SCRS) recently reported that early registration for its Repair Driven Education (RDE), held in conjunction with the 2013 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, has increased significantly compared to the same time a year ago.
"In comparison to 2012, we have already seen a spike of over 1,000 additional registrations, equating to a nearly 250% increase in registrations from this time last year," commented SCRS Executive Director Aaron Schulenburg. "I think one of the biggest draws is all the opportunity that accompanies our RDE education series. I-CAR has a great array of technical training and presentations that complements our informational offerings in the classrooms, and virtually every product and service you could imagine is available on the show floor."
The SEMA Show is considered by many to be one of the industry’s largest networking opportunities and includes more than 90 educational seminars. The show runs Nov. 5-8 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
“For shops who are actively engaged in the industry, or those who want to be, virtually every industry trade group is holding meetings or events in Las Vegas including well known organizations such as AASP, ASA, CREF, I-CAR, NABC, NASTF, OEM Collision Repair Roundtable and SCRS,” said Aaron Schulenburg, SCRS executive director.
