“At Chief University, we are continuously updating our course offerings to help collision repair technicians and insurance professionals keep up with the vehicle structural changes that are taking place at an increasingly rapid rate,” says Ken Boylan, global training manager. “With the launch of the aluminum-intensive Ford F-150 pickup truck and announcements from other OEMs that they will be using more aluminum in their new vehicles, it is important that industry professionals understand how to properly analyze and repair vehicles that include aluminum components.”

The fee for the course is $325, which includes a workbook and certificate of completion. The class is led by Chief University instructors and includes both classroom and hands-training.
