When you've been involved in an accident, you want someone who is reliable. You want someone you can trust to repair your vehicle quickly and properly. I-CAR Gold Class Professionals, such as Lewis, have the most up-to-date training in collision repair and are trained to repair you vehicle the right way the first time.
I-CAR, the Inter-Industry Conference on Auto Collision Repair, is an international nonprofit training organization that established the Gold Class Professionals Program to assist consumers in identifying businesses that have invested in a high degree of professional collision repair training.
Gold Class Professionals are collision repair businesses, insurance companies, and other related businesses that support the I-CAR philosophy of properly repairing vehicles for the safety of the consumer. They recognize that training is an ongoing profession based on rapidly changing vehicle technology. They show their commitment to training by re-qualifying for the Gold Class Professional designation every year.
I-CAR is the leader in collision repair training, and, through extensive research, develops and delivers technical training programs to professionals in the collision repair, insurance and related industries. Through its training, I-CAR reaches a broad base of students who learn the latest methods of efficient, high-quality collision repair. The benefits of I-CAR Training extends beyond the people who take I-CAR courses to the collision repair, insurance, glass, and recycling industries, vocational-education schools and, most importantly, you.
"The Gold Class Professionals designation is the highest form of recognition for training in collision repair," said Tom Mack, I-CAR Executive Vice President. "It signifies commitment to quality through continued training by staying up-to-date with the latest in collision repair technology."
Gold Class businesses are retrained to properly repair vehicles, and they use that knowledge to effectively communicate with professionals from related industry segments and their customers.
To qualify for the Gold Class Professionals Program, a business needs to achieve a high degree of I-CAR Training. This is accomplished through I-CAR courses which cover the entire collision repair process. For example, identifying and analyzing damage, measuring and straightening, welding and structural repair, restoring corrosion protection, chassis and wheel alignment, plastic repair, matching today's high-tech paint finishes, diagnosing complicated electronic systems, and identifying repair vs. replacement decisions.
