I-CAR, the Inter-Industry Conference on Auto Collision Repair, is an international not-for-profit organization dedicated to providing the information, knowledge and skills required to perform complete, safe and quality repairs.
Formed in 1979 out of a collaboration across the six segments of the collision repair Inter-Industry, I-CAR serves -- and is represented by -- all segments of the Inter-Industry:
- Collision repair
- Original equipment manufacturers (OEMs)
- Education, training and research
- Tools, equipment and supply
- Related industry services
I-CAR's focus is to provide everyone involved in collision repair with access to high-quality, industry-recognized training solutions. I-CAR also encourages and supports ongoing conversations in the industry on issues that impact collision repair.
Funding for the organization is primarily derived from student tuition. This assures that I-CAR can remain unbiased in developing programs and services on an industry-wide basis. I-CAR delivers its services and training throughout the United States. I-CAR training content is also licensed for distribution in Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
