I-CAR has announced a new quarterly schedule for course launches and updates, debuting in April and then in July and October for the remainder of 2015.
The first quarterly launch includes both brand-new and updated courses for a variety of different roles. I-CAR announced the all-new Understanding and Preventing Refinish Defects (REF10), along with updates to the following courses: Suspension Systems (STE02), Rack and Pinion and Parallelogram Steering Systems (STE03), Wheel Alignment and Diagnostic Angles (STE04), Collision Repair for General Motors Vehicles (GEN03), Collision Repair for Ford and Lincoln Vehicles (FOR05) and Induction Heaters (INH01e). Also newly available is the American Honda-developed, I-CAR-delivered Honda & Acura Restraints Collision Repair (HON12e) online course.
The new course launches reflects I-CAR’s commitment to delivering increasingly accessible, enhanced and relevant education, plus improved customer support, making it easier to plan training needs and know when new and updated courses will be available.
“I-CAR is committed to supporting the industry by continuing to improve delivery and timing of course availability,” says Josh McFarlin, I-CAR director of curriculum and product development. “This commitment is the driver behind setting a regular launch cadence for adding and maintaining courses in our training portfolio.”
The six enhanced courses that are part of this quarter’s launch offer improvements such as new activities to increase learning effectiveness, HD-quality videos, detailed imagery and charts, up-to-date technical content and OEM-specific information. Students who complete, or have previously completed, these courses will have 24/7 access to the latest versions in their myI-CAR accounts.
