Car-O-Liner announced Car-O-Liner distributor, Sullivan’s Equipment Sales and Service in Danville, Ind., has opened an on-site training center.

The 13,000-square-foot warehouse includes a remodeled training area that will feature live repairs, OEM training, proper sectioning processes and more, said Craig Sullivan, owner and president of Sullivan’s Equipment.

“Rather than telling a technician that there is a book or website they can go to in order to find this information, we are going to show them how to actually do the repairs,” said Sullivan. “The industry is changing so quickly that we need to make sure these cars are repaired correctly so we can benefit the user and get a better, safer product back into the community.”

The center features training in-line with I-CAR training programs, he said. The training center also focuses on OEM training – how OEs expect vehicles to be repaired. The training center has been remodeled to support Car-O-Liner products and guidelines.

“It’s important to repair a vehicle back to OEM standards,” said Sullivan. “For example, if the bumper reinforcement bar doesn’t collapse correctly, it will affect how the airbag deploys, which could harm the occupants. It is vital that we promote education in this business to make sure we repair these advanced cars appropriately.”
