I-CAR announced that online registration for the 2010 I-CAR Industry Conference is now open. The half-day conference will be held on July 21 from 8 a.m. to noon at the InterContinental Chicago O’Hare Hotel in Rosemont, Ill.
This year’s event will coincide with several other industry meetings being held during the same week. During the conference, I-CAR will introduce its redesigned, role-based curriculum structure to the inter-industry.
“For the past two-and-a-half years, I-CAR has been allowed to facilitate an industry-wide conversation on the training needs of the auto collision inter-industry. The industry has told I-CAR what is required of I-CAR to deliver on its vision that every person in the collision industry, current and future, has the necessary knowledge and skills relevant to their position to achieve a complete and safe repair,” said John Edelen, I-CAR president and CEO. “I-CAR has focused on clearly defining industry roles, identifying the knowledge and skills needed to be effective in each role, and developing a training and recognition structure that we believe aligns with the direction of the industry. With the introduction of the role-based curriculum, I-CAR will present the outcome of that effort a significant re-engineering of I-CAR’s training, the organization of its curriculum, its industry recognition programs, and the transition that will take place.”
Jeff Peevy, I-CAR director of field operations, said, “These changes will provide tremendous value to a broad range of inter-industry segments. The redesigned role-relevant training model provides organization and structure for career development paths, linking training more closely to the performance of an individual’s role.”
