SCRS Recognizes RDE Sponsors for Contributions to 2017 Repairer Driven Education

Prosser, Washington, October 25, 2017 – The Society of Collision Repair Specialists’ (SCRS) 2017 Repairer Driven Education (RDE) series will commence on Monday, October 30th at the 2017 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, Nevada. The series, now in it’s 8th year, has grown to be the most comprehensive gathering of subject matter experts for the collision repair industry reaching an expansive audience of collision repair professionals.

The ever-expanding curriculum of training sessions, panel discussions, educational demonstrations and learning opportunities are all tailored to specific needs and interests of collision repair professionals, and are intended to provide developmental opportunities for businesses looking for solutions they can bring home and implement.

There are many factors that lead to the success of industry education programs like RDE, but the series would not be possible without the support from industry sponsors who provide financial and intellectual support for the program.

“We are in a dynamically changing industry,” said SCRS Chairman Kye Yeung, “and it is so imperative that platforms like this exist to bring information and resources to those looking to stay positioned at the front. We feel exceptionally fortunate that so many companies in the industry share our vision for the importance of education, and generously commit resources to support the series and ultimately SCRS’ work for the industry.”

The 2017 Repairer Driven Education series and OEM Collision Repair Technology Summit on Thursday of the SEMA Show is made possible with support from:
DeBeer Refinish

The 2017 Repairer Driven Education series is also made possible with additional support from:
American Honda
GM Genuine Parts
Pro Spot
Spanesi Americas

At noon on Friday, November 3rd, SCRS will hold a drawing in their booth (North Hall #11173) for a SEMA Show attendee to win a Spanesi Q5.2 Synergic Inverter MIG/MAG welding package valued at over $8,500.

To be entered into the drawing, attendees who visit the SCRS booth will be provided with a report card identifying the exhibiting companies which have generously supported the RDE series. Attendees who visit each sponsor listed will receive a stamp on the card from the company. Once a stamp from each sponsor company has been collected, the completed card can be returned to the SCRS booth to be entered into the drawing.

SCRS extends its deepest appreciation to our sponsors, who share the same enthusiasm to motivate positive change through information and education.
