I-CAR Releases First Vehicle-Specific Training Program

I-CAR has released its’ first vehicle-specific training program with the introduction of the I-CAR “Collision Repair Overview for the Volvo S40/V50 (VLV06)”.
Available to the entire collision industry, this program is a result of the training relationship formed between I-CAR and Volvo in 2004. It is one in a series of Volvo vehicle-specific training programs that are being developed through the relationship.
This program covers vehicle design and construction materials used on the new Volvo S40 sedan and V50 sportswagon. The program also covers non-structural and structural repairs, trim and hardware considerations, glass removal and replacement, and an overview of the mechanical and electrical systems.
Volvo Service Training & Development Manager Edward Spirko noted, “The development of the S40/V50 collision repair program provides quality collision repair training. The establishment of this training program supports a Volvo core value of commitment to QUALITY. The knowledgeable I-CAR trainers and dedicated collision professionals, who put this training into practice, will be appreciated by Volvo owners for years to come.”
I-CAR technical development manager Jason Bartanen said, “This program represents a significant milestone for I-CAR training and would not have been possible without the cooperative participation of Volvo. We are very excited about this new, first-of-its kind training program, which has laid the groundwork for future programs designed around a specific vehicle or platform.”
