The Automotive Collision & Repair Alignment was approved by the Kansas Board of Regents on December 16, 2009.
Colleges are granted one year from the approval date to implement the alignment.
Board Staff has issued and "amended" alignment map to more succinctly define the credentialing expectation. Changes to the map included the number of ICAR points for each level of certification.
State Business and Industry Committee Recommendation:
All technical schools and colleges need to be NATEF accredited. ICAR was cited as the preferred certification because it is widely recognized within the industry as the certification of choice for automotive collision & repair professionals.
