Who Is I-CAR?

The 1970s saw a period of rapid changes in automotive technology and vehicle structures. The Inter-Industry recognized that to protect consumer safety, collision repair training also needed to evolve. So the Inter-Industry founded I-CAR® (the Inter-Industry Conference on Auto Collision Repair) in 1979, a not-for-profit training organization dedicated to providing the knowledge for complete, safe and quality auto repairs.

For more than 30 years, I-CAR has proudly developed and delivered the highest-quality technical training to collision repair professionals – from students preparing to enter the industry to technicians with years of experience.
