I-CAR Offering Recycled Parts Course

I-CAR is introducing a new course on using recycled parts during the collision repair process beginning May 18.

Recycled Parts for Collision Repair (RCY01) is a four-hour, live training course that offers information on how automotive parts recycling can reduce total losses, improve cycle time and potentially result in a less-intrusive repair. The course also covers the processes of a typical recycled parts facility as well as procedures for inspecting recycled parts and preparing them for installation.

Although I-CAR says it doesn’t take a position on the use of recycled parts (with the exception of not recommending the use of recycled airbags or passive restraint systems), the training organization understands there are different considerations that need to take place if the decision is made to do so.

“This program is not about making the business decision around whether or not to use recycled parts, but rather one that offers solid guidelines if the decision to use has been made,” said Jeff Peevy, I-CAR director of field operations. “The industry has indicated this class will be very popular.”

Recycled Parts for Collision Repair provides a comprehensive overview of several aspects of the automotive recycling industry to facility managers, technicians and insurance company personnel.

After completing this course, the student will be able to:

• Understand the automotive recycling industry and organizations

• Describe the benefits of using recycled parts

• Identify parts that are commonly recycled and those that are not

• Explain considerations for ordering parts

• Determine if a part has been previously repaired

• Understand the steps for preparing and installing recycled parts

Registration for Recycled Parts for Collision Repair is open for classes beginning May 18. New classes are being added to I-CAR’s class schedule on a continuing basis. Information on class locations can be found on the I-CAR website or by calling (800) 422-7872.
