I-CAR will offer multiple Professional Development Program (PDP) training courses during Industry Week in Detroit, July 31 through August 2. PDP training opportunities at NACE will provide some of I-CAR’s newest courses, including the 2015 Ford F-150 Structural Repair Training Course (FOR06). 

FOR06 opened to the entire industry on June 1. Collision repair training experts at I-CAR worked alongside Ford Motor Company engineers during the 2015 Ford F-150 design and development process, leveraging I-CAR’s expertise to create a training solution, FOR06, for collision repair professionals who will work on the next generation of Ford’s extremely popular truck. The FOR06 course, in conjunction with I-CAR’s Welding Training and Certifcation: Aluminum GMA (MIG) Welding course also meets the 2015 F150 training requirements for the Ford National Body Shop Program.

“I-CAR is thrilled to bring this line-up of training to NACE during Industry Week. This is an excellent opportunity for I-CAR to reach industry professionals with some of I-CAR’s newest and most exciting courses available,” explained Josh McFarlin, I-CAR director of curriculum and product development.
