Axalta is First to Offer Online I-CAR Professional Development Program Credit Hours

Axalta announced that it is the first company to offer I-CAR's Professional Development Program credit hours to collision repair professionals online.

Customers in the United States can now go to Axalta's online learning portal, the Axalta Learning Campus, to start earning credits.

"At Axalta, we're always looking for innovative ways to help our customers grow their business and improve performance," said Troy Weaver, Vice President, Axalta North America Refinish. "I-CAR certified individuals demonstrate a higher level of proficiency and skill that contributes to improved productivity at both the individual and shop level. Our customers recognize the benefits of this training and we are excited to be the first to offer these accredited classes to them both in-person and online."

"The I-CAR Training Alliance is critical to fulflilling our mission," said Nick Notte,  I-CAR Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. "As a long time alliance member, Axalta helps ensure we provide the information, skills, and knowledge required for complete, safe, and quality repairs. We look forward to an ongoing partnership."

newly accredited eLearning courses complement its existing I-CAR credited, instructor-led Refinish Performance Management (RPM) program that helps body shop customers boost the skills and performance of managers, estimators, and other non-technical employees. Through 10 newly accredited RPM eLearning courses, estimators may earn up to 13 additional I-CAR credit hours and production managers can earn up to 17. Both eLearning and instructor-led credit hours may be applied to earning and maintaining I-CAR's Platinum designation in the Professional Development Program for collision repair professionals.
