The I-CAR Vision, Mission & Values

Since 1979, I-CAR has been developing current, relevant and role-specific training solutions for the benefit of the collision repair industry.

The I-CAR Professional Development Program (PDP) trains collision repair professionals in essential role-relevant knowledge and skills

Designed with extensive input from the collision repair industry, PDP training gives collision repair professionals and insurance auto physical damage appraisers the role-relevant information, knowledge and skills they need to perform complete, safe and quality repairs. Businesses that invest in PDP training benefit from improved business performance, enhanced employee development and reduced risks.

In the PDP, each professional develops their skills through a distinct training path tailored to their role. The progressive training is designed to continually build upon their existing knowledge, and is regularly updated to reflect current collision repair techniques. For these reasons, the PDP is recognized as the industry standard for training in the collision repair industry.
