I-CAR Canada has partnered with the Provincial Council of Joint Committees of the Automotive Services Industry (CPCPA) to allow for immediate electric vehicle (EV) training for Canadians across Qubec.


The CPCPA is an association that aims to develop excellence and recognition of the workforce in the automotive services industry across the province of Quebec. The organization’s main mandate is to develop and ensure the standardization of training and qualifications of automotive services employees. Additionally, the CPCPA is responsible for creating and implementing the exams to obtain certifications for industry employees.

This partnership is part of the I-CAR Canada Industry Training Alliance program. In this program, I-CAR Canada partners with different training providers, where collision repair shops and businesses can take courses through these providers and receive I-CAR Canada credits. The I-CAR Canada Industry Training Alliance program also allows collision businesses to take courses through these different training providers to maintain their Gold Class recognition.

I-CAR Canada emphasizes the importance of standardized training and continuous learning, and this partnership with the CPCPA further solidifies that stance. Collision businesses in Quebec will have access to immediate EV training courses, granting more training opportunities for Quebec collision businesses looking to up-skill their workforce regarding EVs and maintain their Gold Class recognition.
