Revolutionary ideas on improving cycle times, new training delivery methods, and industry self-management are on the agenda for the Canadian Collision Industry Forum’s final event of 2005. That’s just some of what’s happening at CCIF these days. After stops in Ontario, British Columbia and New Brunswick, CCIF’s last meeting of the year is set for Saturday, October 15th in Regina, Saskatchewan. At CCIF Fredericton in June, participants were consulted on the idea of establishing a national training data base and on the feasibility of industry self-management. They were also given insight on the "Right to Repair" issue that threatens to restrict access to repair information, OEM tools and training. At CCIF Regina there’ll be an update on these two issues, as well as news from the Canadian Apprenticeship Forum on new ways to attract young people into the skilled trades. The Provincial trade association, SAAR, will talk on the issues facing the industry in Saskatchewan and how they are being faced. The Canadian Collision Industry Forum has become a "must do" event, not only for local participants, but for industry professionals from every Province in Canada. CCIF is undoubtedly a tremendous opportunity for collision repairers, insurers and other industry people to participate, express their views and influence the actions that will benefit them in their business and the industry as a whole. There are always plenty of informative and helpful presentations at CCIF, but when the listening’s done, there’s a chance for everyone to speak in Open Forum and during the break-out sessions where they can join the discussion and share ideas on the issues that are important to them.
