i-CAR (The Inter-Industry Conference on Auto Collision Repair) is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing education to the collision repair industry, ensuring proper repairs. i-CAR Gold Class Professionals®, is the highest i-CAR level of achievement and considered the highest level of training in the industry.
The Gold Class designation lets you know a collision repair shop, like V&J Auto Body, employs trained technicians who know how to repair your vehicle properly. Approximately less than 20% of collision repair shops currently complete the rigorous training requirements needed to meet the Gold Class standard. Some of the i-CAR Gold Class Training includes 6 hours of annual training classes for each technician, it is like continuing education to make sure all of our technicians stay current on new and upcoming products in the auto industry. We also must have 1 Role Rep for each defined area in the Body Shop; Estimating, Non-Structural Repair, Structural Repair, Refinish Repair, and Aluminum Repair.
