Hoffman Estates, Illinois -- November 12, 2013 -- I-CAR will host a free 60-minute webinar in conjunction with Auto Body Repair News (ABRN) on Nov. 14 at 12 p.m. EST.
Entitled Why General Sectioning Guidelines No Longer Apply, the webinar will highlight how businesses and technicians can make the right replacement and sectioning decisions when repairing today's vehicles of complex steels.
"The webinar will explain why collision repair professionals canâ€™t use general sectioning guidelines today, and the importance of current knowledge in steel part repair and replacement," says webinar presenter and I-CAR Performance Training Coordinator Jeffrey Poole. "As construction materials and technologies continue to change rapidly, industry professionals have an obligation for the safety of their customers to keep up with new repair procedures and processes."
The webinar will include information on part removal, replacement, sectioning, attachment, tools, techniques, considerations and welding, using some specific OEM examples as well. It draws on content from I-CAR's new Live-only courses. including "Replacement of Steel Unitized Structures" (SPS10) and "Sectioning of Steel Unitized Structures" (SPS11), as well as the recently updated I-CAR "Steel Sectioning Qualification Test" (SPS05) and the upcoming "Vehicle Technology and Trends 2014" (NEW14).
