I-CAR announced that its new, instructor-led Live Demo course, Documentation and Digital Photography (DOC01) is available to the industry. This course provides training in an interactive shop setting where the student uses his or her own camera to simulate documentation and digital photography best practices.

“A major benefit to this course is that it takes place in-shop and provides the student with an opportunity to use his or her own camera to practice and apply knowledge during a variety of classroom exercises,” stated Josh McFarlin, I-CAR Director of Curriculum & Product Development.

During the course, students will learn about important considerations for taking quality photos, including elements such as proper lighting, angle, flash usage and how to capture damage. Students will gain information on working with an array of different camera types available to them, from the smartphone in their pocket to the camera they use for work everyday. Photo requirements, creation of shot lists and supplement photos are other topics covered in the course.

“Documentation has become increasingly important in collision repair. Repairers rely on documentation to record damage, insurers to assess damage, and customers to understand the status of their vehicle’s repair,” explained McFarlin.

The content learned in this course can be applied in any collision repair setting and contributes to improvement in cycle time and CSI (Customer Satisfaction Index) KPI's.

This instructor-led, Live 3-credit hour course meets training requirements for Estimators and Auto Physical Damage Appraisers in I-CAR’s Professional Development Program (PDP). To register for Documentation and Digital Photography (DOC01), visit the I-CAR website at www.i-car.com or contact I-CAR Customer Care at 1-800-I-CAR-USA (800-422-7872).
