Registration Open for SCRS’ Repairer Driven Education Series at 2019 SEMA Show

Mechanicsville, Virginia, August 1, 2019 – It’s never too early to start planning and registration for the Society of Collision Repair Specialists’ (SCRS) Repairer Driven Education (RDE) series at the 2019 SEMA Show is open and can be accessed at

The 2019 show marks the 10th year of RDE from SCRS, as the association continues to build upon the attendee feedback and programming successes from the past decade, while working to keep the event fresh and continually evolving. Attendees can continue to expect unique classroom experiences with the industry’s most sought-after subject matter experts, while also finding access to new presenters debuting with their first RDE appearance.

Monday’s program kicks off with a newly added

1:00pm feature workshop courtesy of Paul Webb and Elle Artison of Paul Webb Training. With ample attendee recommendations to SCRS after their appearance during the BMW Group Certified Collision Repair Center Conference, the association arranged this session to help our audience focus on Advanced Business Communications – The A-B-C’s Of Building Trust. With a premise of developing “easy to use skills” that build trust with co-workers and customers, and a focus on understanding communication styles, this program is suited for a wide audience, from collision repair professionals to exhibitor staff members who will be manning the booths for the week-long Show. This year’s program –starting with this kickoff workshop – is one you won’t want to miss!

When registering for education through, attendees will have the option to either link the education to an existing registration or to purchase a new show pass at the same time as the education package.

While all education sessions are individually available, SCRS encourages attendees to select a Full Series Pass which will provide the greatest value and access to one regular session in each available time slot, access to all three sessions of the OEM Collision Repair Technology Summit sessions, one ticket to the SCRS After-party on Thursday night, and admission to the IDEAS Collide Showcase on Friday which features 10 new 10-minute presentations.
