I-CAR, the Inter-Industry on Auto Collision Repair, continues to announce its series of new presentation topics for SEMA 2022 show attendees, offering a variety of classroom and stage demonstrations to increase collision repair industry knowledge and skills at the annual Las Vegas convention Nov. 1-4.

“We’ve curated a robust and relevant mix of presentations, courses, sessions, and live stage demonstrations will provide attendees with the most comprehensive education and hands-on learning we’ve ever been able to offer,” noted Center.

Also, registration remains open for our first-time MIG Welding Technology & Applications training session focusing on basic to advanced techniques and ideal for collision repair, classic car, hot rod and vehicle builders/rebuilders as well as other technicians. Although not eligible for I-CAR credit, to encourage newer technicians and vehicle builders out there, I-CAR is making this popular MIG Welding session available for $75 (normally $150) and will include complimentary, hands-on welding practice at the SEMA Collision Repair Stage.

Online registration for all I-CAR class topics is now open and available through Thursday, Nov 3. Stay updated with the complete I-CAR schedule of free presentations and live stage demonstrations.
