decisions. Estimators who lack an understanding of vehicle repair often
agree with collision shop estimators who recommend replacement, when a repair

training for its estimators, adjusters and other reviewers.
Hands-on student activities include actual vehicle repair, as well as
instructor demonstrations to link classroom information. CDAT 101:

Challenge: Structural technicians are

conducted by experienced instructors. The sessions include the
completion of actual full-frame repairs utilizing the latest anchoring,
measuring and pulling techniques and equipment.
