I-CAR launches new courses on Honda, Acura A/C Collision Repair

Hoffman Estates, Ill.– I-CAR, the Inter-Industry Conference on Auto Collision Repair, has announced that it will launch two new courses in the second quarter of 2016: Honda & Acura A/C Collision Repair and Acura NSX Damage Analysis.

The new online courses are part of I-CAR’s continued collaboration with American Honda Motor Co., Inc. in an effort to help deliver Honda and Acura vehicle-specific training to the collision repair industry.  

Honda & Acura A/C Collision Repair (HON15e), the fifth in a series of American Honda-developed, I-CAR delivered online courses, gives technicians the information needed to perform proper and complete post-collision A/C system repairs on Honda and Acura vehicles. The course also empowers facilities to ensure that sublet repairs are done properly. The course is divided into three sections that highlight refrigeration system issues, A/C electrical issues, and service equipment and troubleshooting.



“Few vehicle systems can negatively affect customer satisfaction more so than a malfunctioning air conditioner,” said Steve Osborne, assistant vice president, American Honda Motor Co., Inc. “Because damage to these systems is likely in frontal collisions, this module addresses the most common A/C issues experienced after collision repair and will explain how these issues may be avoided. Even shops that sublet air conditioning repair will benefit from the latest knowledge of the climate control systems used on Honda and Acura vehicles.”

Acura NSX Damage Analysis (HNU04E01), this online course also delivered by I-CAR, and in this case developed by I-CAR in collaboration with Honda, provides an overview of damage analysis considerations for the newly released second-generation Acura NSX. The course is divided into two sections that highlight Acura NSX Non-Structural Repair Network requirements and repair strategy, and Acura NSX damage analysis. The course will primarily benefit collision repair estimators, insurance company personnel, and other industry professionals handling NSX body repairs.
