The Inter-Industry Conference on Auto Collision Repair (I-CAR) recently announced it will introduce two new classes at the International Autobody Congress and Exposition (NACE), to be held Nov. 4-7, 2009, at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center, Las Vegas.
On Nov. 4, industry professionals will have the opportunity to learn the latest information about damage analysis for advanced safety and convenience systems with Damage Analysis of Advanced Automotive Systems (DAM07). In addition, I-CAR is offering Collision Repair for General Motors (GM) Vehicles (GEN03), which reviews repair considerations for General Motors vehicles. Both programs are offered as classroom training programs.
Damage Analysis of Advanced Automotive Systems
- Identify and understand the operation of collision avoidance systems.
- Understand the operations of popular convenience technologies.
- Explain systems that help control the vehicle.
Collision Repair for General Motors Vehicles
- Identify service information, restraints, and steering and suspension systems.
- Explain materials and general repair processes.
- Understand repair and replace considerations for specific GM models.
Inter-industry interest in advanced systems and vehicle-specific information continues to grow as repairers and insurers look for ways to identify and work on vehicles with the newest safety and convenience features. GM has defined procedures for vehicle repair and has worked hand-in-hand with I-CAR to bring a course featuring its vehicles to the industry.
“A technician’s ability to properly repair a vehicle while being aware of the latest advanced systems on today’s vehicles is highly important for the safety and customer satisfaction of the vehicle owner,” said Jeff Peevy, I-CAR director of field operations, North America. “Knowing General Motors vehicle-specific information is helpful to those who see the many GM vehicles on a regular basis. GM has specific repair processes for each model, and there can even be differences from year-to-year on the same model.”
