I-CAR has announced their series of new presentation topics for SEMA 2022 show attendees, offering a variety of classroom and stage demonstrations to increase collision repair industry knowledge and skills at the annual Las Vegas convention to be held Nov. 1-4.
Bud Center, director of Technical Products & Curriculum for I-CAR, announced the complete list of sessions to be held:
- Chief Automotive with Mike Croker, global repair and training product manager
- Lucid Motors with Jake Rodenroth, North American body repair program operations manager
- Snap-On ADAS True Point with Tim Garner, market development manager
There will also be a series of other technical topic panel discussions hosted by I-CAR and SCRS.
“We’ve curated a robust and relevant mix of presentations, courses, sessions and live stage demonstrations that will provide attendees with the most comprehensive education and hands-on learning we’ve ever been able to offer,” said Center. “Also, registration remains open for our first-time MIG Welding Technology & Applications training session focusing on basic to advanced techniques and ideal for collision repair, classic car, hot rod and vehicle builders/rebuilders as well as other technicians. Although not eligible for I-CAR credit, to encourage newer technicians and vehicle builders out there, I-CAR is making this popular MIG Welding session available for $75 (normally $150) and will include complimentary, hands-on welding practice at the SEMA Collision Repair Stage.”
Online registration for all I-CAR class topics is now open and available through Thursday, Nov. 3. Stay updated with the complete I-CAR schedule of free presentations and live stage demonstrations here.
