CHICAGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–LKQ Corporation is excited to announce a new online training course hosted within I-CAR’s virtual training library, “Aftermarket Collision Replacement Parts Considerations”. LKQ has been supporting the collision repair industry through the I-CAR Sustaining Partner program since 2018.
The Aftermarket Collision Replacement Parts Considerations course was released March 2, 2021 and is designed to educate the industry on the evolution of the aftermarket collision replacement part industry. Over the last few decades, what started as a small product offering through rust repair panels has grown to over 100,000 individual SKUs offering bumper assemblies and components, sheet-metal, lighting, cooling, as well as electrical and ADAS components. The course will highlight topics on aftermarket collision replacement part manufacturing, material testing, certifications, vehicle test fit procedures, and crash test performance.
