Manheim Technical Center, located in Nashville, Tenn., has released its training schedule for 2004. Classes on Condition Report Writing and Frame Structure are offered on a first-come first-served basis, with each class admitting 12 enrollees.

The Condition Report Writing class is designed to cover the basics of condition report writing, fundamentals of proper inspection, and damage category identification, such as prior repair, frame, flood, and hail. Also covered in the class are proper inspection techniques, current industry terminology, and collision manual usage. This is a two-day class, fully endorsed by the National Auto Auction Association.

Frame and Structure is a comprehensive and in-depth overview and interpretation of NAAA structural damage policy. This class includes identification of automotive frame types, types of damage structures incur in collisions, and the repair processes collision shops are using today.

The two classes are conducted in consecutive timeframes, allowing attendees to take advantage of both classes. For additional information, including dates, regarding these and other classes offered by Manheim Technical Center, contact the center at (615) 846-4617.
