I-CAR training is structured around your role as a collision industry professional. The first step on the path of the Professional Development Program is to declare your role. Within each role, there are three expected levels of knowledge (ProLevels) that build upon each other. I-CAR courses will help you achieve the knowledge that is required for your role at each of the three ProLevels. Advanced industry professionals with several years of experience may choose to take an Equivalency Test for certain Knowledge Areas.

Training is available from I-CAR in a classroom setting, online, and through the Industry Training Alliance.
