I-CAR tops 3 million students taught

April 21, 2011

April 21, 2011 — I-CAR announced Thursday that it has now taught more than 3 million collision repair students.

To recognize the achievement, I-CAR awarded it 3 millionth student, Kenny Kloncz of Golden State Collision Center in Yuba City, Calif., with admission to three classes. His collision center also received three complimentary courses.

“I-CAR training is very valuable to me as a refinish technician and I was very excited to learn that I’ve contributed to this milestone for I-CAR,” Kloncz said. “Vehicle technology is continually changing and I-CAR training offers technicians like myself a chance to stay current and understand better how to complete repairs.”

Through the commitment of volunteers and instructors, I-CAR has taught more than 60,000 individuals in the last year alone. In 2010, the organization hosted more than 10,000 instructor-led classes throughout the U.S. I-CAR also has licensed operations in Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

“I-CAR training continues to add to the professionalism of the collision industry,” said Doug Middleton, one of I-CAR’s original founders. “It’s inspiring to see the positive developments that I-CAR has made over the last three decades. Reaching the 3 millionth student is not only a testament to the relevance of I-CAR training, but a testament to the passion of I-CAR’s dedicated instructors and volunteers who truly make I-CAR training possible.”
