I-CAR training credits will be free of cost when provided by Sustaining Partners

Oct. 12, 2018
Polyvance, which offers five courses on plastic repair, is part of the Sustaining Partner Program.

Polyvance will support I-CAR’s new Sustaining Partner program. The purpose of the Sustaining Partner program is to bring the collision repair inter-industry together to support training with the goal of ensuring complete, safe and quality repairs.

Polyvance has been part of I-CAR’s Industry Training Alliance program since 2015. Polyvance offers one of the only recognized hands-on nitrogen plastic welding training in the industry. The Industry Training Alliance recognizes training provided by industry partners like Polyvance by allowing students to redeem such training for I-CAR continuing education credit hours.

However, up until this point, technicians would have to pay I-CAR for the credit hours for training provided under the Industry Training Alliance program. Now, with the advent of the Sustaining Partner program, I-CAR will no longer require the technician to pay for credit hours – I-CAR credits will come at no additional cost when training is provided by Sustaining Partners, like Polyvance. This should serve to encourage shops and technicians to do more training, thus supporting I-CAR’s goal of ensuring complete, safe, and quality repairs.

Polyvance currently offers five different courses on plastic repair – three hands-on and two online, self-paced courses. The online courses include the new EPR-01 Estimating Plastic Repair course developed in partnership with Accountable Estimating and the PR-03 Headlight Repair Course.
