Podcast From Scene Genesis Features I-CAR's Edelen

CEO of Training Organization for Auto Collision Industry Discusses Future

PITTSFORD, NY--(Marketwire - June 6, 2008) - John Edelen, interim CEO and board chairman of I-CAR, an inter-industry training organization for the auto collision industry, discusses I-CAR's initiatives for the future in the newest podcast from Scene Genesis.

I-CAR provides training programs to collision repair facilities, insurers, manufacturers, and others.

"Having the knowledge to repair today's high-tech cars takes cooperation among manufacturers, collision-repair shops, insurers, tool suppliers and others, and I-CAR fosters that cooperation to provide training to the inter-industry," Edelen says. "Delivering this training is supported by a network of extraordinarily driven group of volunteers and part-time program instructors. Their dedication and hard work is the heritage and strength of I-CAR."

The podcast can be heard on www.sceneexchange.com.

This is the latest of "Topics in Ten," a monthly podcast that brings opinions and ideas to the collision repair industry.
