Kish College program receives I-Car donation

The Collision Repair Technology Program at Kishwaukee College has been awarded one year of Professional Development Program– Education Edition curricula materials for the academic year.

“I-Car PDP is recognized as the industry standard in professional shops,” Greg Brink, CRT faculty, said in a news release. “This donation – which is worth about $4,000 – allows our students to complete the I-Car curricula and graduate with I-Car certification, making them even more employable. This is a great testament to the quality of our CRT program.”

The PDP-EE curricula consist of 16 programs of instruction and 15 online modules in the Non-Structural Technician and Refinish Technician training.

“PDP-EE is I-Car’s new model for CRT training,” Brink said in the release.“When our students complete this training, they will be certified at Pro-Level 1 for the two programs. This enhances their employability because I-Car certified shops – especially those that are Gold Level Certified – must have Pro-Level techs on staff. Our graduates coming out of school already certified means the shops do not have to pay for the I-Car training. The students have it already.”

Brink plans to make the most of his donated year of PDP-EE curricula and is thrilled that Kishwaukee College CRT students will gain long-term real-world benefits from the donation.

“This is extremely generous of the Collision Repair Foundation and we are very grateful to have been selected as a recipient of the PDP-EE training,” he said in the release.
