The Collision Industry Electronic Commerce Association (CIECA) announced that its next CIECAST webinar is scheduled for Thursday, July 22 at 1 pm CST: “Technology’s Impact on Future Training; Welcome to the Gamer Culture.” The webinar will feature Jeff Peevy, I-CAR vice president, Technical Products, Programs & Services.

During the one-hour live broadcast, Peevy will share information about the training curriculum that will be relevant for all industry segments in the future. This includes the impact of technology and gaming.

“World-class training goes way beyond conveying technical accuracy and precision of repair,” explained Peevy. “It’s about understanding and appreciating the needs of all training audiences, including how individuals consume information, and constantly adjusting curriculum to reflect these changing needs.”

Peevy said that the impact of technology and gaming cannot be underestimated.

“To not recognize the tremendous influences of these trends and how they translate into future learning opportunities would be a misstep for all,” he said.

Webinar topics will include:

  • The influence of AI (Artificial Intelligence) and gaming on the future of training.
  • How I-CAR’s Technical Operations are recalibrating its research and development area to include state-of-the-art resources for all industry segments.
  • Updates on inter-industry involvement for curriculum development.
  • Previews of new ways I-CAR’s technical experts are sharing information to benefit the industry.

All industry segments, including CIECA members and non-members, are invited to attend. Following the presentation, there will be a Q&A session.

Peevy spearheads the strategic development and growth of all I-CAR curriculum and technical relations efforts while leveraging his more than 20+ years of executive management experience in the industry. Prior to rejoining I-CAR in 2020 as vice president, Technical Products, Programs & Services, Peevy served as president of the Automotive Management Institute (AMI) since 2015, and as the 2019-2020 chairman of the Collision Industry Conference (CIC). He also shares a long and successful history with I-CAR, where he served as senior director of field operations and led I-CAR’s collision repair segment team before his AMI post.

Attendees can earn Automotive Management Institute (AMi) credit toward an industry-recognized, professional designation and specialty degree by attending this webinar.
