DAM15 replaces Electronically Controlled Steering and Suspension Systems (STE05).
I-CAR has announced that its Advanced Steering and Suspension Systems Damage Analysis class (DAM15), an all-new, instructor-led interactive course, will replace Electronically Controlled Steering and Suspension Systems (STE05) on June 9, 2014.
This interactive, three credit hour course provides detailed information on the considerations for inspecting steering and suspension systems. It meets training requirements for estimators, auto physical damage appraisers and electrical/mechanical technicians in I-CAR’s Professional Development Program (PDP).
“Advanced steering and suspension systems are common in today’s vehicles, and if not repaired properly, other vehicle systems can be compromised,” said Josh McFarlin, I-CAR director of curriculum and product development. “Repairers can apply knowledge learned in this course throughout the repair process.”
The course also has a series of interactive classroom activities and problem-solving scenarios designed to engage the student and enrich their learning experience to further prepare them to apply their knowledge on the job. Toward the end of the course, the student will engage in a “damage discovery” activity where he/she will simulate the estimating process.
Once DAM15 premieres, STE05 will be discontinued. If STE05 has been completed, training credit earned will not be lost.
