SEMA 2019 is around the corner (November 5-8) , and with so much to see and do at the world’s premier automotive specialty products trade event in Las Vegas, here’s why interacting with I-CAR should be on your SEMA “Bucket List!” 
1. Earn I-CAR Credit

I-CAR is bringing training to you, with four classes available from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday-Thursday of SEMA: Capturing Quality Photos, Coordinate the Repair Process (NEW!), Understanding Cycle Time Process, and The Art and Science of Estimator Interactions. With more than 75 new vehicle designs and changes launched each year, highly trained technicians who apply the latest repair methods are better equipped to perform complete, safe and quality repairs for the benefit of the customer. Need more reason to enroll?  On average, those same technicians repair vehicles up to 14% faster than untrained technicians. 
Register for all courses online here, or you may also register while at SEMA outside rooms N238 and N240.
