I-CAR Australia is pleased to announce that Barry James Auto Body Repair Centre in Ballarat, Victoria, has been awarded the prestigious I-CAR Gold Class Collision status.
“We have always been industry leaders as Ballarat’s first quality endorsed smash repairer and now Ballarat’s first I-CAR Gold Class Repairer. We believe I-CAR training empowers and develops the knowledge and skill of every person working on a vehicle. It is a critical tool to being the market leader and for the future with motor vehicles constantly changing and the increased complexity of the technology involved,” said owner Glen James.
“We have invested heavily in time and money with I-CAR and believe this investment is crucial to the strong commitment we have at Barry James Auto Body Repair Centre to our existing customers, staff and also to the Ballarat community.”
I-CAR’s online virtual classroom sessions allowed the team members to participate in regular training, which resulted in the company achieving Gold Class status in a short period of time. The training was flexible and self-paced, allowing the company to take advantage of COVID-19 lockdown periods.
“We are proud to have facilitated a learning culture where all our staff have embraced training and understand that to be a professional body repair or paint technician; they need to be I-CAR trained to keep up with the latest processes and procedures. Our staff are proud to say that they are I-CAR Platinum Individual accredited technicians. The ongoing renewal training required by Gold Class will keep us up to date with all aspects of the collision industry and will continue boosting our long-standing strong reputation within the industry,” added James.
Great work on their commitment to learning and congratulations to Barry James Auto Body Repair Centre for expediting the bulk of their trainings within a year to achieve Gold Class!
