I-CAR Australia Gold Class Coordinator Gary Wood today announced that Spencer Panels in South Melbourne, Victoria has been awarded the prestigious I-CAR Gold Class Collision status.
“As a Certified Holden Repairer, Spencer Panels entered into the Road to Gold program twelve months ago with I-CAR. They have been regular participants in live and virtual training sessions to meet the Gold Class training requirements. It is credit to all involved that they have achieved the Gold Class accreditation in the timeframe set out by Holden,” said Wood.
“Initially the task of becoming an I-CAR Gold Class repairer seemed too difficult and a lot of extra work on top of day to day activities. Having now achieved Gold Class Status I can say that the process was rewarding,” explained owner, David Truccolo.
“Along with their values of quality and safety, Gold Class will complement the OEM specific training Spencer Panels has committed to with the multiple badges they hold,” added Wood.
“Not only have we increased the knowledge base of our work force, but our workers have learnt extra things in the fields they have been working in for years, welding in particular,” concluded Truccolo.
