I-CAR Classes at SEMA

With more than 75 new vehicle designs and changes launched each year, highly trained technicians who apply the latest repair methods are better equipped to perform complete, safe and quality repairs for the benefit of the customer. If that isn’t enough, on average, those same technicians repair vehicles up to 14% faster than untrained technicians.
