New I-CAR Damage Analysis Course Now Available

I-CAR has introduced a new classroom training course, Advanced Material Damage Analysis (DAM08). Industry professionals will have the opportunity to learn the latest information about damage analysis for advanced materials, collision energy management, and special considerations for these materials, which can lead to the most educated repair vs. replace decisions.

“As more advanced materials are used in today’s vehicles, identification of those materials becomes even more important to a complete and safe repair,” said Jeff Peevy, I-CAR director of field operations “This class will be valuable to anyone writing estimates and building repair plans on newer vehicles.”

Nearly 200 classes have been scheduled throughout North America, and additional courses are being added daily. I-CAR says interest in advanced systems continues to grow as repairers and insurers look for ways to identify and work on vehicles with advanced materials.

After completing the new I-CAR Advanced Material Damage Analysis course, an individual will be able to:

• Identify advanced materials used for vehicle construction and describe their characteristics and applications

• Explain how advanced vehicle construction materials affect collision energy management

• Understand damage analysis considerations for advanced materials

• Make repair vs. replace decisions for specific advanced materials and understand general damage analysis considerations

• Describe the effects of heat and straightening on different advanced materials

• Explain advanced materials recycled parts considerations, joining methods, corrosion protection, and refinishing considerations

Registration for Advanced Material Damage Analysis is currently open, and new classes will continue to be added.
