The foundation offers scholarships, grants, and other education opportunities so you can develop sought-after skills and earn a good living in a trade that rewards hard work and passion.

 

In the 1980s, the collision industry was facing its first critical shortage of qualified and well-trained entry-level employees.

 

The country’s technical education system was no longer able to produce enough high-caliber graduates to meet industry needs. In response, industry partners created the Collision Repair Education Foundation in 1991.

 

The Foundation’s goal was to develop, promote, and distribute a curriculum program designed to teach the skills most needed by entry-level employees of collision repair shops.

 

Today, nearly two-thirds of the 1,370 collision repair schools in the United States use the I-CAR Live or Advance-Tech curriculum.

 

The Education Foundation is committed to continuing to award substantial annual support, both to students and to collision training programs.
