Module 1 – In-Process QC Overview
Module one identifies some very common concerns and quality issues that are experienced throughout the industry. It will help those in production management to identify what the current state of their facility is and if any of these common problems are occurring. It will also emphasize the importance of having quality checks and standards documented and in place how they can really benefit the facility.

Module 2 – Estimate QC Standards
There is a lot to do and remember to write an estimate. This module discusses areas that are often either overlooked or forgotten. We will identify possible solutions to help reduce or eliminate problems. Much of the material is based on the process of blueprinting and will provide helpful tips.

Module 3 – Structural & Body Repair QC Standards
This module will break down the repair process into structural and non-structural tasks. Included will be information on quality checks, and processes that cover measuring, welding, straightening and body repairs, and tips to incorporate those processes. Visual aids to use as reference when performing inspections during the repair process will also be provided.

Module 4 – Refinishing QC Standards
This module discusses quality checks during the prep, refinish and detailing phase. Also included will be ideas and tips that can be used to implement checks. You will learn the thought process tools to find the root cause of problems rather than just continuously repairing the defects.
