Aluminum-Intensive Vehicle Repairs (ALI01)

How can you ensure that you have the knowledge and skills needed when faced with a repair decision on aluminum structure? Throughout this course, you will make repair procedure decisions on a simulated aluminum-intensive vehicle, exposing you to some of the considerations that you could be faced with on a regular day I your collision repair facility. This interactive I-CAR course offers discussion, education, and decision-making exercises designed to equip collision repair professionals with the knowledge needed to repair aluminum structures. As aluminum continues to gain popularity among vehicle makers due to its high-strength, lightweight nature, it is more critical than ever for repairers to understand the unique considerations around working with aluminum structures. The distinctive characteristics of aluminum require proper electrode wire and rivet type and length selection. Additionally, straightening considerations, removal and installation procedures, and attachment methods differ from vehicle to vehicle and must be identified in order to achieve complete and safe repairs.
