I-CAR Industry Alliance classes

I-CAR Industry Training Alliance logo.

South Piedmont offers classes from I-CAR, the largest certifying organization in the automotive repair field. Classes are offered on the L.L. Polk Campus in Polkton and students receive in-depth training in the classroom as well as hands-on training in the lab. There are 50 different I-CAR Alliance classes available at SPCC, which offers at least two of them at a time. The cost for each class is $240.

Industry-trained technicians make an average of 15 to 20 percent more than untrained technicians and more and more shops are requiring I-CAR training of their employees. I-CAR Live classes are available on site for more experienced technicians. It is very difficult to get a start in Auto Body without proper training.

"Our Alliance training from I-CAR allowes us to be able to educate beginners, as well as technicians that just want to sharpen their skills to keep up with today's modern vehicles," Winfrey said. "With our I-Car Professional development training, we give students a head start as they seek employment on an entry level."
