Training Classes

Computerized Measuring Systems

This course is designed for entry to advanced technicians that are just starting to work with Car-O-Liner equipment.

Unless otherwise noted, all training sessions are held at our location in Mooresville, NC.

For more information or an application, please contact


  1. Technicians will be able to identify the different components of a vehicles programmed energy management system and explain how they affect vehicle repairs.
  2. Technicians will be able to identify and describe the different classifications of collision damage.
  3. Technicians will be able to identify and explain the three dimensions of measuring as well as how Car-O-Liner develops its data sheets and the different components of a Car-O-Liner data sheet.
  4. Technicians will be able to identify and demonstrate the proper clamping techniques for both unitized and full frame vehicles using Car-O-Liner clamping components.
  5. Technicians will be able to identify the different components of the Car-O-Tronic measuring system as well as demonstrate proper centering and measuring techniques for both underbody and upper body measuring.
  6. Technicians will be able to identify the components of EVO and demonstrate their use for when holding is required.
