I-CAR Australia is pleased to announce today that Shipstone Accident Repair Specialists based in Windsor Queensland has been awarded the prestigious I-CAR Gold Class Collision status.
“Our people are at the centre of everything we do,” said Scott Donnelly, National Manager – Prestige, OEM & Technical at AMA Group Ltd, who owns Shipstone. “It’s great to be able to invest in their ongoing training and development. It has been very rewarding to see them enjoy this process and the sense of achievement at the end.”
Joining the I-CAR Gold Class program was a company decision that has enabled AMA Group to invest in the continuous upskilling of their people. Shipstone centre manager Dan Gosling congratulated his staff on achieving Gold Class: “They have put in an amazing effort this year and the I-CAR Gold status recognises their commitment to the company and the training required to work on the modern vehicle safely and correctly”. Maintaining technicians’ training and expertise at the highest standards ensures work providers and customers will continue to receive the best possible repairs and experience.
I-CAR’s multiple training partners and delivery options gave Shipstone great flexibility to train technicians, without losing too much shop time. They found in-house training modules from Glasurit excellent from a timing point of view and benefited from I-CAR’s training alliance relationships with Audi, Porsche, and Car-O-Liner.
The auto repair industry is changing rapidly, and technology is advancing at an incredible pace. Continuous training is critical to keep up to speed with evolving vehicle construction and repair methods. Combined with existing OEM training, AMA Group plans to extend I-CAR Gold Class training to other repair shops in its network, for technicians at Shipstone, and elsewhere, to go on to Platinum status. This will put them in a great position to continue serving customers to the highest standards.
