I Car Reaches 3 millionth student milestone



Hoffman Estates, IL – April 21, 2011 – I-CAR, the Inter-Industry
Conference on Auto Collision Repair, has announced it has surpassed teaching its
three millionth student. I-CAR was founded in 1979 and is a not-for-profit
organization focused on helping the collision repair inter-industry achieve a
high level of technical training. The organization celebrated its achievement by
awarding the three millionth I-CAR student, Kenneth Kloncz of Golden State
Collision Center-Yuba City, with admission to three future I-CAR classes, as
well as awarding the Golden State Collision Center-Yuba City with an additional
three complimentary I-CAR classes. Golden State Collision Center -Yuba City has
been an I-CAR Gold Class Professionals® business since June 2010.

I-CAR, with the dedication of its local volunteers and instructors, has
taught over 60,000 unique individuals in the past year through instructor-led
(live) training in proper collision repair techniques and up-to-date information
on vehicle technology. In 2010, I-CAR hosted over 10,000 instructor-led (live)
classes and qualification tests nationally. Internationally, I-CAR has licensed
operations in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.

“I-CAR training is very valuable to me as a Refinish Technician and I was
very excited to learn that I’ve contributed to this milestone for I-CAR. Vehicle
technology is continually changing and I-CAR training offers technicians like
myself a chance to stay current and understand better how to complete repairs,”
said Kloncz.

“I-CAR training continues to add to the professionalism of the collision
industry. It’s inspiring to see the positive developments that I-CAR has made
over the last three decades,” said Doug Middleton, one of I-CAR’s original
Founders. “Reaching the three millionth student is not only a testament to the
relevance of I-CAR training, but a testament to the passion of I-CAR’s dedicated
instructors and volunteers who truly make I-CAR training possible.”

knowledge and skills of an individual and recognize their commitment to
role-relevant training through the I-CAR Platinum Individual® designation and
