Aluminum-Intensive Vehicle Repairs (ALI01)

With the ever-increasing use of higher-strength materials in vehicle designs, all of which work differently, there is an even greater demand for aluminum repair training. This engaging I-CAR course offers discussion, education, and decision-making exercises designed to equip collision repair professionals with the knowledge needed to repair aluminum-intensive vehicles. Throughout the course, students make repair procedure decisions on a simulated aluminum-intensive vehicle, exposing them to some of the considerations that they may be faced with on a regular day in their own collision repair facilities. During the course, students will learn about the distinctive characteristics of aluminum and requirements for proper electrode wire and rivet-type and length selection. Additionally, anchoring and straightening considerations, removal and installation procedures, and attachment methods for different vehicles are identified.
