I-CAR, the Inter-Industry on Auto Collision Repair, continues to announce its series of new presentation topics for 2022 SEMA Show attendees, offering a variety of classroom and stage demonstrations to increase collision-repair industry knowledge and skills at the annual Las Vegas convention, to be held November 1-4.
I-CAR’s Director of Technical Products & Curriculum Bud Center announced the complete list of sessions to be held, including live interviews and panel discussions with:
- Chief Automotive-Structural Holding with Mike Croker, Global Repair and Training Product Manager
- Lucid Motors with Jake Rodenroth, North American Body Repair Program Operations Manager
- Snap-On ADAS True Point with Tim Garner, Market Development Manager
There will also be a series of other technical topic panel discussions hosted by I-CAR and SCRS.
“We’ve curated a robust and relevant mix of presentations, courses, sessions and live
stage demonstrations will provide attendees with the most comprehensive education and hands-on learning we’ve ever been able to offer,” noted Center. “Also, registration remains open for our first-time MIG Welding Technology & Applications training session focusing on basic to advanced techniques and ideal for collision repair, classic car, hot rod and vehicle builders/rebuilders as well as other technicians. Although not eligible
for I-CAR credit, to encourage newer technicians and vehicle builders out there, I-CAR is making this popular MIG Welding session available for $75 (normally $150) and will include complimentary, hands-on welding practice at the SEMA Collision Repair Stage.”
Attendees will also be able to register on-site outside I-CAR Classrooms S224 and S225. As previously noted, I-CAR will hold a free series of live educational presentations on topics, including Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), Electric Vehicles (EVs), Scanning and Calibrations, Welding and more at the SEMA Collision Repair & Refinish Stage.
Additionally, I-CAR, a SEMA Education Partner, will participate in the free and new SEMA
ADAS Showcase #39007, in Upper South Hall and SEMA Electrify #11268 in the North Hall. Individuals who take I-CAR educational training gain knowledge and credits valid toward the I-CAR Platinum designation, which is given to collision repair professionals who achieve and maintain high levels of role-relevant training that contributes to complete, safe and quality repairs, and which also contributes to I-CAR Gold Class recognition for their repair facility, both representing the highest role-relevant training achievement recognized by the collision-repair industry.
