Companies supporting education in the industry like 3M, Bendix, Chief, Diesel Laptops, Enterprise, GFS, I-CAR, and many others will highlight the afternoon agenda at the third-annual HD Repair Forum, taking place March 24-25 at the Worthington Renaissance in Fort Worth, Texas.

The HD Repair Forum’s education program is geared toward providing executives, owners, managers and leaders of companies within the industry with actionable information that can be used in their respective businesses.

HD Repair Forum Advisory board member, Rodney Rowland of Lakeside Trucks, stated, “The combination of high-level technical, leadership and business management information immediately pays dividends in my shop. The knowledge I have gained and will gain at this year’s event allows me to better prepare my business for the future.”


All stakeholders, including insurers, independent appraisers, collision repairers, shop owners, OEMs, information providers and others allied to the field are encouraged to attend these sessions. Each educational session is designed to be short and impactful, with most classes being 60 minutes in length and a few taking 90 minutes.

“Aside from networking, one of the most valuable aspects of this event is the knowledge gained. The event provides a diverse set of classes that can be applied to personal growth or business improvement,” said HD Repair Forum Advisory board member, Ed Rietman of K&R Truck Sales. “Employee development and management is always top-of-mind, and this years’ program will not disappoint.”


Registration to the event is now open. Registration fee includes all training classes, as well as breakfast and lunch on both days, and a welcome reception sponsored by PDA on Tuesday night. Additional registration information can be found at
