I-CAR Gold Class for Smart Repair Australia (Rocklea)

I-CAR Australia is pleased to announce that Smart Repair Australia’s Rocklea site in Queensland has been awarded the prestigious I-CAR Gold Class Collision status. Core staff members who carry out conventional panel repair, replacement and refinishing, have met the training requirements required to achieve the Gold Class accreditation.

 “We’ve invested greatly in our people over the past few years, and we want our people to be given every opportunity available to thrive in their careers. The Road to Gold Program was an obvious choice to aid us in this,” stated Greg Elliott, General Manager of Smart Repair Australia. “Our Queensland staff were very positive from the outset to start training. In addition to the learning, this was also a great team building and info sharing experience for all of us: having pizza and spending some time off the tools together was a great experience.

Elliot added that the team at I-CAR Australia was always very helpful and passionate about what they do, which in turn helped them greatly in structuring thier training plan, ensuring they achieved great results. “I would absolutely recommend training for Gold Class accreditation to everyone because I would like to see a consistent level of knowledge right across all forms of automotive repair businesses and for their staff.  I think this is great for our industry.”

 Although Smart Repair Australia is primarily a hail damage repair company specialising in PDR, they also carry out panel repairs and replacements. Having full time designated staff members carrying out these tasks has allowed I-CAR Australia the opportunity to develop a personalised training program that covered all aspects of the conventional repair process. The Rocklea team at Smart Repair Australia was very eager to be part of this learning culture and they completed a range of courses to meet the training requirements, with a highlight on the Lead Body Technician and Lead Estimator/Non-structural Body Technician both successfully completing the I-CAR steel welding certification to verify their welding skill.

I-CAR congratulates the team on their efforts. By achieving Gold Class status, Smart Repair Australia (Rocklea) joins a growing number of esteemed collision repairers to be recognised with this certification.
