    Collision Hub, whose mission is to educate collision industry stake holders and to push OEM correct repair procedures, cuts through all the noise with their online video library called Repair University. Collision Repair education on-demand doesn’t get any easier than watching the videos produced by Collision Hub.
    The Coordinating Committee For Automotive Repair (CCAR) is a non-profit organization with a singular focus on the automotive industry and its needs for safety and hazardous material compliance and training. Founded in 1994 with grant funding from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), CCAR is also one of the original Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) Alliance partners and is the only partner focused on providing safety best practice information to the automotive collision and repair industries. CCAR has twice been recognized by the ASE Training Managers Council (ATMC) with their “National Excellence in Training” award and was chosen by the North American Hazmat Action Committee (NAAHAC) to develop hazardous material handling training courses.
    Kristen Felder, Collision Hub’s Chief Executive Officer said “We at Collision Hub are excited to be partnering with CCAR. Our goal is to combine CCAR’s excellent training and credentialing offerings with Collision Hub’s video training platform. We are confident that together we can help everyone in collision repair to remain productive”. Charlie Ayers, President of CCAR, stated “CCAR and Collision Hub are forming what we are confident will be a long-term partnership that taps into the best both organizations have to offer. Expanding CCAR’s reach in collision repair has been a goal of ours and Collison Hub is the optimal organization for making that goal a reality.”
    CCAR offers more than 20 individual Safety course modules through the online learning management system (LMS) called autoEHS. In addition, 11 Hazardous Materials courses are also offered within the autoEHS platform. Annual subscriptions to the training are offered on a per rooftop basis, meaning the cost for the training is the same whether a shop employs 10 people or more than 100. The courses can be accessed at
