Meeting Info


Aloha Members!

The Board of Directors and the Education Committee cordially invites you to attend and participate in the following two upcoming seminars instructed by industry expert Larry Montanez from P&L Consulting.

Thursday, September 7, 2017 is “Tech Night - Repairing Aluminum.” This will be a hands-on type workshop and though designed for the technicians, we also recommend it for owners, managers and estimators to attend. The workshop is based on repairing aluminum. Proper repair procedures and techniques will be covered. It’s not that difficult… it’s just different.

When: Thursday, September 7, 2017 (5:30pm – 9:30pm)
Cost: $199.95 per person (includes bento)

Saturday, September 9, 2017 is a combination of three programs into one… Metallurgy, Crash Management and Advanced Damage Report Writing. This is NOT your typical “estimating class!”

The morning session is scheduled to start at 8:00am and is a pre-requisite to the afternoon session. The morning session covers the different strengths of steel and aluminum… their functions & designs… different attachment methods… its repairability… and a list of the specialized equipment that’s required. It is also designed to assist with diagnosing damage and pre-measuring. It will include crash videos to illustrate and assist in better understanding how these vehicles absorb, transfer or manage applied collision forces.

Saturday afternoon’s session is an Advanced Damage Report Writing program. Which includes, applying what was presented in the morning session, an overview of P-Page's non-included operations, calculation of “Featheredge, prime & blocksand” and utilizing the OEM’s repair procedures for an in-depth and accurate damage report writing.
