I-CAR® launches Introduction to Carbon Fiber, a new online course specifically designed to help collision industry professionals better understand how to work with carbon fiber in the collision repair process. Carbon fiber is one of several technically advanced materials that is becoming more prevalent in vehicle designs thanks to its outstanding strength-to-weight ratio, contributing to automaker light-weighting initiatives in support of efforts to achieve increasingly challenging CAFE standards.
The online course, Introduction to Carbon Fiber (CFR01e), helps to identify and understand this high-tech material and dispels related common collision repair myths. The course features interactive exercises, detailed videos, high-quality graphics, and current vehicle examples to demonstrate repair and replacement options for carbon fiber.
The 2-credit hour course meets training requirements for the Gold Class ProfessionalsTM, Platinum IndividualTM and Professional Development ProgramTM (PDP) programs for the following roles: Non-Structural Technician, Steel Structural Technician, Aluminum Structural Technician, Estimator, and Auto Physical Damage Appraiser.
