I-CAR Australia proudly announces first Gold Class repairer in Tasmania

I-CAR Australia recently announced that Finn’s Bodyworks, Launceston, has been awarded the prestigious I-CAR Gold Class Collision status.

“We entered the Road to Gold Program to ensure we are up to date with the most current information and to provide our technicians with ongoing training throughout their careers. We did a combination of all the training delivery methods with each one having its own benefits but overall, we found the online virtual classroom method was the easiest to work with in a busy workshop,” said Rob Atkinson, manager of Finn’s Bodyworks.

“Two of our staff also completed a Greenbelt course with PPG through the Industry Training Alliance that has also been very beneficial as they have been able to pass on the knowledge and new skills to the rest of the workshop. The most rewarding aspect of our Road to Gold program was definitely working as a team through the training since it was a huge achievement for all that participated. Each time a technician received the Platinum Individual accreditation, it was cause for a small celebration and we would present the certificates at our staff meetings.”

“Congratulations to Finn’s Bodyworks on their commitment to become the very first I-CAR Gold Class repairer in the state of Tasmania. The number of Gold Class businesses around the country continues to grow, reflecting the positive attitude towards the ongoing changes within our industry,” added Gary Wood, I-CAR Australia Gold Class Co-ordinator.

“The I-CAR Gold Class certification will ensure the entire staff of Finns Bodyworks are trained to the highest level within the collision repair sector and are now well placed to deal with the challenges ahead.”
