I-CAR Raising Prices for Training

I-CAR Raising Prices for Training by $2 per Credit Hour

The Inter-Industry Conference on Auto Collision Repair (I-CAR) announced on Friday that starting in December, the cost of training will increase by $2 per credit hour or $6 for the typical three credit hour class. Current pricing for Gold Class businesses and Platinum individuals is $31 per credit hour ($93 for 3 credit hour live class) or $39 per credit hour ($117 for 3 credit hour live class) for others.

Under the new pricing, Gold Class business and Platinum Individuals would pay $33 per credit hour ($99 for 3 credit hour live class) or 6.5 percent more than current pricing.

In an email announcing the increase, Ann Gonzalez, Senior Director of Marketing, explained, “After holding Gold Class/Platinum pricing flat for four-years, in Dec. 2014 I-CAR will introduce a $2 per credit hour class price increase, the first increase since 2010. Even with this $2 price increase, as result of all the surcharges and fees I-CAR has eliminated (Gold Class renewal fees, Gold Class Plaque Fees, Assisted Registration Surcharge, etc.), the reduction in Welding program pricing, and the absorption of economics over the past 4-years, on a volume-adjusted basis, the industry in 2015 will on average spend 12 percent less for I-CAR training and recognition than it did in 2010.”

Customers who pre-register for future classes prior to the price increase will receive current pricing.
