I-CAR to Launch Two New Programs in August

I-CAR announced it will launch two new classes on collision repair considerations for the most popular vehicles on the road and emerging technology in today’s vehicles. On Aug. 3, I-CAR will launch the Collision Repair for Select High Volume Vehicles (POP01) Live training program, and on August 10, the Vehicle Technology and Trends 2010 (NEW10) Live training program will be available.

I-CAR says that interest in popular vehicles and new trends is growing among repairers and insurers.

“Keeping pace with change is important to stay competitive in today’s collision repair inter-industry,” said Jeff Peevy, I-CAR director of field operations, North America. “These courses offer a comprehensive look at a variety of vehicles with special attention on future innovations that may soon become common on most vehicles and a greater understanding of newer vehicles commonly seen in collision repair facilities today in an effort to turn knowledge gained into less rework, improved cycle time and overall greater efficiency in the workplace.”
