I-CAR New Technology Course to Premieres at SEMA

The Inter-Industry Conference on Auto Collision Repair (I-CAR) will premiere its new Vehicle Technology and Trends 2015 (NEW15) course during the SEMA show in Las Vegas in early November.

Josh McFarlin, Director of Curriculum & Product Development for I-CAR explained, “Lightweight vehicle materials like aluminum and high-strength steel are driving major changes in vehicle construction. For repairers, this can mean major changes to the collision repair process. Understanding these changes before vehicles enter the shop contributes to right first time repairs and associated efficiency gains.”

Vehicle Technology and Trends 2015, a 3-credit hour course, meets the training requirements for all Professional Development Programroles. The course provides information structural design innovations, system changes and new materials and electronics throughout new and redesigned vehicles. The course will also give a glimpse into some of the aluminum-intensive vehicles coming to market that will require aluminum repair training.

Information and registration for I-CAR training at SEMA is available online. Registration is open and the course will be open to the industry beginning November 24, 2015.
