La Baie, Quebec — August 4, 2014 — Carrossier ProColor La Baie recently hosted a training session on repairs to aluminum-bodied vehicles, such as the new 2015 Ford F-150.
The training session aimed to explain the procedures for the repair of aluminum-bodied vehicles, such as the 2015 Ford F-150, which will pose new challenges for collision repair centres. The training was attended by staff from 15 participating collision repair facilities, all located in the greater region of Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean.
â€œWe even invited our competitors,â€ says Jean-Claude Morin, owner of Carrossier ProColor La Baie. â€œWe needed a minimum number of participants; otherwise the trainers would not come. That would mean going elsewhere for training, in Montreal for example, which is far from easy for our employees.â€
The training was provided by I-CAR Canada. It was a theoretical lesson of four hours in length. An eight-hour practical training session will be offered this fall. Morin said that the new F-150 will be released at the same time.
â€œWe must be ready. If we do not get the required certification to repair this type of alloy on time, we will not be able to do it,â€ says Morin.”It is imperative that we remain at the forefront of technology.â€
