VEHICLE AND ALTERNATIVE FUEL VEHICLE TRAINING PROGRAMS 

Hoffman Estates, IL – September 7, 2011 – Throughout 2011, I-CAR
has introduced several new online training programs to the industry, including
programs with all-new content and instructor-led (live) training programs that

converted from the live delivery format contain the same content and are
available 24/7, through a convenient online platform. I-CAR has recently added
