SUNNYVALE, Calif., Jan. 29, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Da-Les Auto Body, a full service auto repair facility located in Sunnyvale, Calif., has just posted a new blog to its website that explains why advanced training for today's hybrid automobiles is a must for auto body shops. The new article, which is titled "Da-Les Auto Body is a Hybrid-Certified Auto Body and Collision Repair Shop," offers an in-depth and interesting explanation as to why advanced hybrid vehicles like the Toyota Prius demand specialized service and care.
As the article notes, in order to work safely on hybrid vehicles—which have different repairing criteria than traditional gasoline or diesel cars and trucks—mechanics truly need to understand what sets hybrids apart, and how these differences can be potentially dangerous if a mechanic is not fully trained.
Because it wants to ensure that their mechanics are able to work on hybrids both safely, and in accordance with the manufacturer recommendations, Da-Les Auto Body is a member of the I-CAR Gold Class network of hybrid-certified auto body and collision shops. This certification means that customers who bring their Toyota Prius or other hybrid in for service or repair can rest assured that the technicians at Da-Les are trained to the highest manufacturer-compliant standards.
"It's absolutely crucial in today's environment to stay up to date with the latest in technology," noted Manny, a repair estimator at Da-Les Auto Body, adding that the training he received through the Inter-Industry Conference on Auto Collision Repair is designed specifically for collision experts, and is broken into modules that discuss the various safety and compliance issues involved in repairing hybrids like the Toyota Prius.
"There are a number of reasons why Da-Les technicians are required to take the I-CAR training course, including ensuring that our technicians have the ability to work on any automobile knowledgeably and safely. However, the single biggest reason is practicality: The Toyota Prius is the Number One hybrid vehicle we repair."
Thanks to the intensive and thorough training that the mechanics who work at Da-Les Auto Body have received, Manny and the other technicians now know how to solve the unique issues that come up with the Toyota Prius and other hybrids. The I-CAR training course gave them manufacturer and model-specific information on how to safely work with hybrid cars, as well as how to properly care for and repair them.

Docker offers a new, lightweight approach to application portability. Applications are shipped using a common container format and managed with a high-level API. Their processes run within isolated namespaces that abstract the operating environment independently of the distribution, versions, network setup, and other details of this environment. This "containerization" has often been nicknamed "the new virtualization." But containers are more than lightweight virtual machines. Beyond their small...
