September 11, 2014

I-CAR, the Inter-Industry Conference on Auto Collision Repair, will offer 11 Professional Development Program™ (PDP) training courses at SEMA 2014 in Las Vegas November 4 through November 7. PDP training options for SEMA attendees will deliver some of I-CAR’s newest courses, including the Aluminum Exterior Panel Repair and Replacement Training Course (APR01).

APR01 opened to the industry on August 25 and provides in-depth information on the array of considerations to take into account when making repair decisions on aluminum panels. This course is extremely relevant to proper repair of vehicles featuring aluminum exterior panels, which are becoming more prevalent due to the advancements in vehicle light weighting.
