ASOG Podcast Ep 40 - Dirk Fuchs of I-CAR from ETI ToolTech
Jun 28, 2021 Episode 40
David Roman & Lucas Underwood

In this episode, recorded live from ETI ToolTech 2021 in Austin Texas, we speak to Dirk Fooks, the Director of Technical Programs & Services at I-CAR.

The repair industry is facing a fundamental change, unlike anything it's seen in its history. 

This is different than the move from carburetors to fuel injection or the introduction of onboard diagnostic systems.

Instead, this is a move that completely changes the vehicle's mode of propulsion. 

As the internal combustion engine is phased out, training becomes imperative for the automotive service professional. 

But, what about the shops that decide they don’t need to bother?

What about those that are willing to work on electric vehicles, but haven't invested in proper tooling or training? 

Is the solution more government regulation? 

Dirk proposes a solution to the problem of under-equipped, untrained shops flooding the market with poorly executed, cut-rate services.
