Ottawa, Ontario — March 4, 2016 — Two new I-CAR courses are headed our way in April. Both courses are hands-on and are related to welding or attachment methods required by various OEM procedures.
The courses are part of I-CAR’s Hands-On Skills Development series. According to I-CAR, these courses provide unique, personalized preparedness for both collision repair facilities and technicians to stay competitive in today’s rapidly evolving collision repair industry. Designed to ensure end-to-end shop readiness, a statement from I-CAR says Hands-On Skills Development gives shop owner’s peace of mind and technicians a chance to hone their skills based on their own personal level. Hands-On Skills Development combines the intellectual and experiential sides of learning, resulting in a holistic learning experience that directly engages shops and technicians. Learning in the context of the shop environment on equipment used everyday offers a unique opportunity to collaborate as a team and gain readily applicable knowledge and skills.
The first of the new courses is Rivet Bonding (RVT01). With the Ford F-150 and other vehicles requiring this attachment method, there is a need for technicians to become familiar with this repair process. The course gives technicians hands-on practice and coaching from an experienced instructor to meet the challenge of this unique technique.
The second new course debuting in April is MIG Brazing (BRZ02), which provides an in-shop, hands-on training that prepares collision repair facilities and technicians for the shift to high-strength steel (HSS) and ultra high-strength steel (UHSS) vehicles entering the market. According to I-CAR, an in-shop pre-course capability and readiness assessment combined with instructor-led practice ensures shops are ahead of the curve on this technology.
