Hoffman Estates, Illinois -- April 8, 2014 -- I-CAR has announced that its popular Steering and Suspension Damage Analysis (DAM06) course has been completely revamped. The course now includes up-to-date information on damage analysis procedures on the range of steering and suspension systems and parts featured in vehicles being repaired today. The course also includes a series of interactive classroom activities designed to engage the student and enrich their learning experience to further prepare them to apply their knowledge on the job.
â€œThis course provides an understanding of steering and suspension repair considerations that can help eliminate the chance of compromising the vehicleâ€™s integrity during the repair and reduce comebacks,â€ says Josh McFarlin, I-CAR Director of Curriculum & Product Development. â€œContent included in this course is beneficial to repairers, business owners and ultimately consumers.â€
During the course students will gain a detailed overview of steering and suspension systems and parts. They will also have the opportunity to analyze certain issues such as caster, camber and toe. Other content, including understanding ride height difference and additional inspection methods, plus how to use alignment angle readings are covered in DAM06. Students will participle in multiple activities throughout the course, including an interactive alignment activity where they will determine alignment angles.
This instructor-led, Live 3-credit hour course meets training requirements for Estimators and Auto Physical Damage Appraisers in I-CARâ€™s Professional Development Program (PDP).
