I-CAR Australia and AMA Group have congratulated Bellarine Smash Repairs in Moolap, Victoria for gaining I-CAR Gold Class Collision status.
“I-CAR Australia provides our industry with an avenue for body shops to give their employees the training that is required to ensure repairs are completed to the highest standards and safety, for both our customers and our team,” said Scott Donnelly, Technical Training, Prestige & OEM Manager at AMA Group. “The options of face-to-face, virtual, and online training make scheduling easier to fit into a busy workplace. BASF and Car-O-Liner, I-CAR’s Industry Training Alliance Partners, helped us with continual support and technical training.”
Andrew Steen, Centre Manager at Bellarine Smash Repairs, said that with vehicle technology increasing across the board, technicians must be equipped with the latest information and skills. “Our team has embraced the training needed and the different training delivery options work well. We are aiming to achieve current Platinum status with as many technicians as possible,” he added.
I-CAR and AMA said Platinum Individual professional recognition is one of the highest training levels a technician can achieve in the collision repair industry, adding: “It is great to see a collision repair specialist such as Bellarine Smash Repairs reaching higher and maintaining ongoing professional training for their technicians.
“Congratulations to Bellarine Smash Repairs for completing I-CAR Australia’s Gold Class professional training and accreditation programme and we look forward to your continued success and training for your technicians.”
