I-CAR: Structural Straightening Steel (SSS01) $
When:November 5, 2013 - 8:00am - 12:00pm
Where:Las Vegas Convention Center, N240
I-CAR, the Inter-Industry Conference on Auto Collision Repair, is returning to the SEMA Show in 2013 with I-CAR training available to attendees each day of the SEMA Show. I-CAR training is structured around individual’s roles as collision industry professionals and helps achieve the knowledge required to advance in the industry.
Structural Straightening Steel (SSS01)
New vehicles and new materials means rethinking what you once thought to be true. The use of more high strength steels are changing the way to correctly approach structural repairs. For example, anchoring points may have changed - and selecting the wrong anchoring points may actually damage the vehicle rather than help the repair. Gone are the days where a structural technician only straightens to repair, sometimes a good technician knows to straighten for replacement too. Also, knowing when to use heat, how much heat, or not to use it at all, can make or break a repair. This course will cover all of these topics, and more, including: identifying types of damage and developing a repair plan, considerations for removing a part vs. keeping it attached, straightening equipment's and their uses, pulling equipment and hardware, proper positioning while straightening, setting up pulls and proper stress-relieving techniques, and anchoring on full-frame vehicles.
This course meets I-CAR ProLevel or annual training requirements for the following role: Structural Steel Technician.
