Inter-Industry Conference on Auto Collision Repair (I-CAR)


Founded in 1979, I-CAR (Inter-Industry Conference on Auto Collision Repair) is an international, not-for-profit training organization dedicated to improving the quality, safety, and efficiency of auto collision repair for the ultimate benefit of the consumer.

I-CAR has adopted a concept we call “Outward Vision”. This concept is driven by the need to define the “Ideal State” of the Collision Industry relative to technical training. I-CAR’s definition of the Industry’s “Ideal State” is:

Every person in the Collision Industry has the necessary technical knowledge and skills relevant to their position to ensure a complete and safe repair.

I-CAR develops and delivers technical training programs to professionals in all areas of the Collision Industry. In addition, I-CAR provides a communication forum for anyone interested in proper collision repair.

I-CAR’s primary funding is derived from student tuition and services. This assures that I-CAR can remain unbiased in developing courses and services on an industry-wide basis.
