I-CAR Australia Gold Class Coordinator Gary Wood today announced that Leighton Panel & Paint in Bicton, Western Australia has been awarded the prestigious I-CAR Gold Class Collision status.
“Congratulations to Mitchell and the team at Leighton Panel & Paint. Through a combination of virtual classroom sessions, ITA training and participation in the I-CAR welding certification they fully deserve the recognition of I-CAR Gold Class status,” said Wood.
“Our industry is changing faster than ever before, understanding how to estimate vehicle damage correctly and understanding the way repairs are to be undertaken and completed are now vitally important. I-CAR training has been a large eye opener in these areas of our business. As most would know, it can be very difficult to get the required information from manufacturers to generate estimates in a timely manner. The knowledge we have picked up through the on-going training has been very beneficial to be able to tackle many large jobs with confidence. All of our staff are very happy to finally achieve Gold Class status with I-CAR, all of the late nights in front of a screen have paid off,” explained Mitchell Franks.
“The Gold Class status is the highest level of accreditation within the I-CAR Professional Development Program. Leighton Panel & Paint has fully committed to develop their knowledge and understanding which will ensure that they have the technology and capabilities to deliver on every repair” concluded Wood.
