I-CAR reaches training agreement with AIA Canada

April 21, 2010

April 21, 2010—I-CAR and the Automotive Industries Association (AIA) of Canada have reached a final licensing agreement that gives the AIA oversight of I-CAR training in Canada.

The agreement is the final step in a process that began more than one year ago following I-CAR’s decision to license its course content to a Canadian entity. Similar agreements exist with Australia and New Zealand, according to I-CAR.

“We are excited about this relationship with AIA Canada, and what it means for the Canadian auto collision repair inter-industry,” said John Edelen, I-CAR president and CEO. “The ability to continue to provide access to I-CAR training through a proven industry leader like AIA Canada is the best outcome we could have hoped for. We look forward to working with AIA as their training and services strategies unfold.”

“I-CAR has built a solid reputation over the years for its development and delivery of first-rate training courses,” said Marc Brazeau, AIA Canada president. “We intend to capitalize on this experience in meeting the skills needs of the Canadian collision repair sector and this partnership agreement with I-CAR will help ensure long-term success of the delivery of I-CAR training in Canada.”

I-CAR training will continue in Canada as scheduled. A full transition will take place by May 1, according to I-CAR. Call 800.808.2920 for more information.
