I-CAR refreshes training catalog with updates to two courses

Jan. 1, 2020
I-CAR has enhanced two Professional Development Program courses, Adhesive Bonding (ADH01) and the Steel Sectioning Qualification Test (SPS05).
I-CAR has announced today that as part of the organization’s ongoing commitment to serving the industry with relevant products and services, it has enhanced two Professional Development Program™ course offerings in June, Adhesive Bonding (ADH01) and the Steel Sectioning Qualification Test (SPS05). Both enhanced courses are available now and registration is open. With the addition of “Live Demos” to the ADH01 course, students will be able to benefit from an interactive training experience that supports increased student engagement in the classroom and more effective and retained learning. Live demonstrations provide students the opportunity to experience first hand how to properly prepare parts and use adhesive materials. David Wolf, I-CAR Instructional Designer explained, “The demonstrations in the course simulate adhesive bonding procedures using two-part adhesives and will present the steps for an adhesive that is applied to bare metal, as well as the steps for an adhesive that requires a primed mating surface.” In addition to the new Live Demo delivery format for ADH01, I-CAR has also updated its SPS05 test. Students will benefit from a training and testing experience that more closely represents common structural repair procedures. Enhancements include updated rail design, material thickness, and welds. Another unique benefit to the SPS05 training experience is that training and testing take place in-shop, so students use the tools and equipment that they work with regularly. Jason Bartanen, Director, Industry Technical Relations said, “The Steel Sectioning Qualification Test is an excellent way to help verify that technicians are equipped with the knowledge and skills needed to improve their in-shop performance and to reinforce the importance of following proper repair procedures,” He continued, “A technician’s ability to properly perform sectioning procedures extends well beyond the shop floor. Improper repairs can impact the structural integrity of the vehicle, passenger safety, and airbag performance.” To learn more about Adhesive Bonding (ADH01) or the Steel Sectioning Qualification Test (SPS05), or to request a welding event, visit the course catalog under the “Training” tab on the I-CAR website or call I-CAR Customer Care at 800.422.7872.
