Volvo Cars of North America, LLC now incorporates I-CAR training programs and an I-CAR certification into their collision repair certification program.
Knowledge of subjects in general collision repair is necessary for you to get the most benefit, and achieve success, in the Volvo-specific programs. I-CAR provides training on a wide variety of collision repair subjects. Even though some of the designated I-CAR training programs are not required as part of the Volvo certification network, I-CAR and Volvo encourage a solid training base.
As I-CAR students, Volvo technicians will complete their training by attending I-CAR collision repair programs utilizing the existing I-CAR class delivery system and I-CAR instructors.
All I-CAR programs included in the Volvo certification program, including the Volvo-specific training programs, are open to any collision industry professional. Programs will be listed in the online class schedules when available.
