I-CAR Exclusively Delivers New Honda and Acura Vehicle-Specific Training

First two modules, Using Honda & Acura Service Information (HON10e) and Honda & Acura High-Strength Steel Repair (HON11e), launched on Feb. 9.

2015-Honda-AccordI-CAR announced that it has teamed with American Honda to exclusively deliver Honda-developed online training to the U.S. market via I-CAR.com, providing accessibility across the collision repair industry. The first two modules in the planned series launched on Feb. 9.

“We are excited to be American Honda’s partner for delivery of Honda- and Acura-specific training to the U.S. market,” said John Van Alstyne, CEO and president of I-CAR. “This initiative builds on our OEM momentum and similar recent training partnerships I-CAR has forged with OEMs such as Ford, Jaguar and Land Rover to deliver OEM vehicle-specific training. That said, this relationship with Honda is unique in that this is the first time I-CAR is delivering a series of OEM-developed online training. By collaborating with I-CAR for delivery of OEM-specific training, Honda is leveraging our vast market reach and mature delivery systems to make sure the industry has ready access to the information and knowledge necessary for complete, safe and quality repairs of Honda and Acura vehicles.”

Added John Bosin, I-CAR’s director of segment development – OEM, “Partnering with American Honda to deliver this portfolio of training modules builds upon what they have already been doing to make repair information more broadly accessible across the industry. American Honda is one of the earliest and most significant contributors to I-CAR’s Repairability Technical Support (RTS) Portal. American Honda has worked with I-CAR to ensure their information on the ‘RTS Portal’ is comprehensive and a valuable resource to the industry.”

Using Honda & Acura Service Information (HON10e) is an online, one-hour course educating students on the importance of using factory service information and potential consequences if it is not followed. It provides information on Honda and Acura service publications that may be helpful during repairs and demonstrates how to use ServiceExpress.

The second module, Honda & Acura High-Strength Steel Repair (HON11e), is also an online, one-hour course that offers an overview of the different grades of high-strength steel parts for Honda and Acura vehicles, and how to access the repair information using Honda and Acura service information. It also covers approved repair methods for high-strength steels when repairing Honda and Acura vehicles.

“I-CAR is uniquely qualified to deliver the new training modules developed by American Honda,” said Steve Osborne, assistant vice president of Parts, Service & Technical Operations. “Their platform provides the most effective and efficient delivery of our content to the professional repair industry. And the online classes make it cost-effective for shops by eliminating the need to travel. Safe and complete repair is our goal, and to achieve that, we recognize our responsibility to make this training available to all shops that repair Honda and Acura vehicles.”
