I-CAR Has Surpassed Teaching its Three Millionth Student

I-CAR focuses on helping the collision repair inter-industry achieve a high level of technical training.

I-CAR, the Inter-Industry Conference on Auto Collision Repair, has announced it has surpassed teaching its three millionth student.

I-CAR was founded in 1979 and is a not-for-profit organization focused on helping the collision repair inter-industry achieve a high level of technical training.

The organization celebrated its achievement by awarding the three millionth I-CAR student, Kenneth Kloncz of Golden State Collision Center-Yuba City, with admission to three future I-CAR classes, as well as awarding the Golden State Collision Center-Yuba City with an additional three complimentary I-CAR classes.

Golden State Collision Center -Yuba City has been an I-CAR Gold Class Professionals business since June 2010.
I-CAR, with the dedication of its local volunteers and instructors, has taught over 60,000 unique individuals in the past year through instructor-led (live) training in proper collision repair techniques and up-to-date information on vehicle technology. In 2010, I-CAR hosted over 10,000 instructor-led (live) classes and qualification tests nationally.

Internationally, I-CAR has licensed operations in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.

“I-CAR training is very valuable to me as a Refinish Technician and I was very excited to learn that I’ve contributed to this milestone for I-CAR. Vehicle technology is continually changing and I-CAR training offers technicians like myself a chance to stay current and understand better how to complete repairs,” said Kloncz.

“I-CAR training continues to add to the professionalism of the collision industry. It’s inspiring to see the positive developments that I-CAR has made over the last three decades,” said Doug Middleton, one of I-CAR’s original Founders. “Reaching the three millionth student is not only a testament to the relevance of I-CAR training, but a testament to the passion of I-CAR’s dedicated instructors and volunteers who truly make I-CAR training possible.”

The I-CAR Professional Development Program is structured to advance the knowledge and skills of an individual and recognize their commitment to role-relevant training through the I-CAR Platinum Individual designation and recognize businesses for their breadth of training with the industry-recognized I-CAR Gold Class Professionals designation.
