I-CAR Rolls Out New Damage Analysis and GM Vehicle Classes

I-CAR announced it will introduce two new classes at NACE in Las Vegas. On Nov. 4, I-CAR will launch Damage Analysis of Advanced Automotive Systems (DAM07) and Collision Repair for General Motors Vehicles (GEN03).

Both programs are offered as classroom training programs. Damage Analysis of Advanced Automotive Systems provides the latest information about damage analysis for advanced safety and convenience systems, and Collision Repair for General Motors Vehicles outlines repair considerations for GM vehicles.

I-CAR says interest in advanced systems and vehicle-specific information is growing as repairers and insurers look for ways to identify and work on vehicles with the newest safety and convenience features. GM has defined procedures for vehicle repair and has worked hand-in-hand with I-CAR to bring a course featuring its vehicles to the industry.

“A technician’s ability to properly repair a vehicle while being aware of the latest advanced systems on today’s vehicles is highly important for the safety and customer satisfaction of the vehicle owner,” said Jeff Peevy, I-CAR director of Field Operations, North America. “Knowing General Motors vehicle-specific information is helpful to those who see the many GM vehicles on a regular basis. GM has specific repair processes for each model and there can even be differences from year to year on the same model.”

The I-CAR Damage Analysis of Advanced Automotive Systems course will help repairers to:

• Identify and understand the operation of collision avoidance systems

• Understand the operations of popular convenience technologies

• Know systems that help control the vehicle

The I-CAR Collision Repair for General Motors Vehicles course will help repairers to:

• Identify service information, restraints, and steering and suspension systems

• Explain materials and general repair processes

• Understand repair and replace considerations for specific GM models

Registration is open for classes beginning in November for Damage Analysis of Advanced Automotive Systems and Collision Repair for General Motors Vehicles courses, and new classes are being added to I-CAR’s schedules.

Information on classes scheduled locally can be found at www.i-car.com through the “class search” or by calling I-CAR Customer Care at (800) 422-7872.
