Painters Supply & Equipment Company to Sponsor I-CAR Forum

Painters Supply & Equipment Company (PSE) will be
showcasing its new state-of-the art Learning Center as it hosts I-CAR spokesperson and past I-CAR Chair Chuck Sulkala in a “Collision Industry Update Forum.”

Sulkala will introduce the “New I-CAR” to
collision repair owners and managers in the PSE service area. He’ll review the history of
I-CAR, the new I-CAR Professional Development Program and “Test Out” options. He’ll also answer any questions related to I-CAR and I-CAR training strategy.

“Technical training is a vital component in the success of
today’s collision repair facility,” says PSE Vice President of Sales & Marketing Guy
Bargnes. “In addition to working
with I-CAR to bring training programs to our market, the opportunity to have an
I-CAR spokesperson speak directly to shop owners and managers regarding
strategic training issues is a huge value that we’re proud to facilitate. It’s a primary reason why we
established our Learning Center.”

Sulkala will detail the role- and level-based
I-CAR Professional Development Program launched last July. The Professional
Development Program, created with the assistance of all segments of the
collision industry, provides a framework for planning and tracking training
achievement based upon an individual’s role in a collision repair or insurance
business. Sulkala will also explain the transition timeline for participants in
the I-CAR Gold Class Professionals and Platinum Individual training
recognition programs, as well as highlight the many volunteer opportunities
available to support collision industry training through the non-profit
training organization.
