Oct. 27, 2014—I-CAR recently announced that it will premiere its new Vehicle Technology and Trends 2015 (NEW15) course at the 2014 SEMA Show, held at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Nov. 4–7.

Vehicle Technology and Trends 2015 will provide information on upcoming vehicles and technology trends that will impact the repair processes, including structural design innovations, system changes and new materials and electronics throughout new and redesigned vehicles. The course will also give a glimpse into some of the aluminum-intensive vehicles coming to market that will require aluminum repair training.

“Lightweight vehicle materials like aluminum and high-strength steel are driving major changes in vehicle construction,” Josh McFarlin, director of curriculum and product development for I-CAR, said in a release. “For repairers, this can mean major changes to the collision repair process. Understanding these changes before vehicles enter the shop contributes to right first time repairs and associated efficiency gains.”

The 3-credit hour course meets training requirements for all Professional Development Program (PDP) roles.
