I-CAR Canada announces new French language professional development program

I-CAR Canada is pleased to announce the launch of the new French-language Professional Development Program (PDP) in Fall 2021. The PDP includes an all-new course format based on 30 and 60 minute on-line courses, providing more efficient and effective training for collision repair. With this launch francophone technicians and shops will have the latest in vehicle repair training.

The course translation project has taken almost three years and a $1 million investment by the main partners, the Quebec Government, CSMO Auto, AIA Canada and I-CAR.

As always, the standards for collision repair excellence are evolving, and the PDP brings with it new requirements for achieving Gold Class shop recognition and Platinum individual recognition. Shops required to meet the new standards will have 12 to 24 months to adapt. And all can be assured that any existing I-CAR training will receive full credit in the new PDP.
