Joseph Kinch, Thanks for Visiting!

A little about my short time in the Collision Industry

I've been in the industry since 1974 going to Newton North High School Auto body program. Working as a helper from 1974-75 at Newton Chrysler Plymouth.

Leaving to be a tech at Perry Pontiac Cadillac till 1976.
I went back to Newton Chrysler Plymouth till 1978.

In November of 1978 I moved to San Diego CA to to see what all the fuss was about on the west coast. In one weeks time I was working full time at Morena Auto Body right outside from old town San Diego. Working there till 1981, I got tired of the west and came back east.

Going to work for a friend at Galaxy Auto body in Newton, till 1982.

I moved over to West End Chevrolet till 1984, when I got an opportunity to become a collision technology instructor, which I've been doing now for thirty years at Medford Vocational Technical High School.

Since teaching I've become, a Member of Mass Auto body Association, NATEF, ASE, Fusor, I-CAR Platinum, PPG Master Certifications, 3M Trainer the Trainer Certification, SP/2 Collision Safety Training Administrator, Member of the Collision Repair Instructor Network(CRIN)and I-CAR Industry Training Alliance, US Air Force Outstanding Teacher Award 2004-08, Fender Bender Magazines Collision Technology Instructor of the year 2009 and Technology Education Magazine runnerup Technology instructor of the yeay 2010.

Many of my students have become shop owners, Insurance adjusters, paint reps, inside sales, technicians and painters.
I love what I do and hopefully I can do it for a few more years.

I want to make sure we answer your questions regarding the EPA final rule:

I-CAR has a course specific to the EPA final rule that can be taken online. This online course is approximately 60 minutes and will count towards your I-CAR continuing education.

Hi Joseph
How do you want me to help - send some magazines or give you some names of mags in the UK? I only have voucher copies of the magazines I write for, so don't have spares unfortunately.

Thank you for bringing it to my attention!

The I-CAR Education Foundation will use all its resources to communicate the opportunities available to career and technical schools and colleges.

I will double check and make sure you are included in their lists, sorry for any inconvenience.

Quite the extensive background in automotive you have there...thanks for mentioning I-CAR. I hope more technicians become involved with I-CAR training as it truly serves a great purpose.
