DuPont Performance Coatings (DPC) announced the addition of a new Damage Analysis II course to its curriculum as part of the DuPont Performance Services program.

DPC’s Damage Analysis course debuted in the 1990’s and has trained over 5,000 estimators and managers on its constantly evolving content. The development of an advanced Damage Analysis course was part of the continuous improvement process, with expanding content, new resources, and the desire to provide interactive exercises in both courses.

“Mike Anderson, our industry expert from Collision Advice, was the main content contributor and he will be our primary instructor for the course,” said Steve Trapp, performance services manager. “We also were honored to have numerous database companies, material manufacturers, frame equipment suppliers, and other DPC staff provide insights and contribute photo’s and exercise resources to make this a “best in class” interactive training course.”

The new Damage Analysis II course includes advanced content on the following topics:

  • Concepts on repair judgment and the sector system from Damage Analysis I
  • Eliminate supplements through refined blueprinting / repair planning processes
  • Parts management to optimize repair timelines
  • Advanced structural damage analysis using computerized dimensioning systems
  • Advanced refinish damage analysis to justify refinish times
  • “Writing It Right” to comply with insurance guidelines to optimize scorecard results
  • Negotiating best practices.
