Holmes Panel and Paint awarded I-CAR Gold Class

I-CAR Australia is pleased to announce that Holmes Panel and Paint located in Raceview, Queensland has been awarded the prestigious I-CAR Gold Class Collision status.

“The Road to Gold Program suited our business as a means to keep up-to-date with the latest repair considerations and technological advances. It is an extension of our commitment to instil a learning culture throughout our business as we recognise the value of investing in the ongoing development of our talents,” revealed Matt Bryan, owner of Holmes Panel and Paint.

“The online delivery method available for the I-CAR training is convenient and provides us with the ability to train multiple staff concurrently and in a relaxed setting. As a result, our team was engaged in their learning and were in an environment where they felt open to discuss the topics in further detail. We are very proud of the growth mindsets displayed by our team in their commitment to the ongoing learning and development of their skills.”

Bryan added that the ability to utilise the option of onsite training and assessment from BASF was of particular benefit for their paint team as they were able to receive their training and assessment without the need to be offsite.

“With the smash repair Industry’s rapidly evolving new technological and material advances, the ongoing Gold Class training will make certain our team is well positioned to increase our knowledge and capabilities ensuring we remain competitive and can deliver the highest quality industry standards for our clients. In particular with the emergence of electric vehicles, we plan to provide our staff with ongoing training in this area to ensure we are kept at the forefront of the latest vehicle and repair trends,”  concluded Bryan

Holmes Panel and Paint is a member of Car Craft Queensland. By achieving I-CAR Gold Class, they join a growing number of repairers to be recognised with this certification. Congratulations!
