AUTOMOTIVE INDUSTRIES ASSOCIATION OF CANADA

Fix Auto, Leader in Collision Training Requirements

July 26th, 2011 – Fix Auto, one of North America’s largest networks of independent collision repair centres, made an announcement last week to its affiliates across Canada of the 2011 requirements for each location: at least one person per location must acquire mandatory I-CAR training set by Fix Auto Inc.

“Fix Auto moves closer towards getting I-CAR recognition at all of its locations across Canada” states Mike Kaplaniak, Director of Operations at Fix Auto. Fix Auto requires that each location must have completed the Hybrid Electric and Alternative Fuel Vehicles course, the Vehicle Technology and Trends 2011 course as well as two other I-CAR or equivalent courses of choice.

“This is clearly a significant step ahead in the professional development approach of the industry” states Andrew Shepherd, I-CAR Canada Director. “Fix Auto is a leader in Canada and is once again demonstrating that leadership through its commitment to training.” With I-CAR’s new Independent Learning option, shops will be able to learn on-line through the twenty (20) short courses, worth one-quarter of an I-CAR point, or through the fifty (50) full courses, worth one I-CAR point. “These are the same high quality courses that have been offered in-class” clarifies Shepherd.

I-CAR Canada wishes to congratulate Fix Auto on their exemplary leadership and is pleased to assist in professional development through the delivery of industry-leading courses.
