The emphasis on hands-on training is part of I-CAR’s mission to get shops qualified to do the repairs they’re tasked with, so that they can do complete, safe and quality work. The demos for repair elements such as riveting directly connect with courses offered by I-CAR.
Plastic Repair and Squeeze-Type Resistance Spot Welding join the previously introduced Rivet Bonding and MIG Brazing courses. All Hands-On Skills Development courses are specifically designed to provide collision repair technicians with techniques and skills that target today’s vehicles.
These new designations require multiple categories of training and professional achievement, including business related and soft skills, technical damage analysis and information provider. Both designations require I-CAR training to satisfy technical damage analysis.
The Collision Repair Education Foundation (CREF) is proud to announce the recipients of the scholarships in collision repair that were created to assist deserving students pursuing a career in the collision industry.
I-CAR will develop and deliver Volvo vehicle-specific training that will be required in addition to the standard Gold Class requirements; the Volvo coursework will join I-CAR’s current portfolio of over 35 unique Vehicle & Technology Specific Training courses later this year.
