I-CAR Announces Premiere of New Vehicle Technology Trends Course at SEMA

I-CAR introduced a new course on Nov. 2 during the SEMA Show at the Las Vegas Convention Center. I-CAR’s new course provides training on the latest vehicle technology and its implications during the repair process.  

Vehicle Technology and Trends 2011 (NEW11) is an instructor-led course that offers students information on the many features surrounding new vehicle designs and innovations. Students will learn about new materials and equipment, changes in automakers’ procedures and government regulations.

Jeff Peevy, I-CAR director of field operations, said, “The ability to recognize new technology and its implications during the repair process can be key to achieving a safer, more complete repair, and improved operational efficiencies. This course will be beneficial to anyone involved in the repair process.”

Peevy added, “This course provides detail on new features such as electric vehicles, fuel-saving tires, stronger aluminum and side airbag pressure-based sensors. The course also touches on what might be expected in future innovations, including: new steel vehicles, new U.S. fuel economy standards, expandable metal, metal that straightens itself, electric and plug-in plans and smarter headlamps.”

I-CAR says its new course, Vehicle Technology and Trends 2011 (NEW11) will help students:

• Recognize new vehicle materials and designs, safety features, park-assist systems, collision-warning systems, and alternative fuel systems

• Distinguish newer model vehicle features and technologies from their predecessors

• Determine repair procedures for plug-in electrics, hybrid high-voltage batteries, and pressure-based sensors

• Understand how the economic climate, new efficiency practices, and government mandates are contributing to rapid changes in vehicle technology

• Identify the newest technologies on North American, Asian, and European vehicles

• Identify the trends that will become tomorrow’s standard features
