I-CAR Australia has awarded Gold Class Collision status to David Nash Smash Repairs in Hervey Bay, Queensland.
Kathy Nash, Business Manager at David Nash Smash Repairs, said staff had completed random training courses but the business was looking for a more structured and goal-oriented way of keeping abreast of constant changes in the industry.
“It made sense to jump onboard the ‘Road to Gold’ programme when it was offered to us as part of the Suncorp Group recommended repairer criteria,” Nash said.
“The various training methods we utilised with I-CAR provided flexibility and options to integrate training into our daily work schedules with relevant ease. PPG also provided valuable on-site training for our entire staff, which had the benefit of getting everyone in the team on the same page.
“We want to keep our Gold Class status long-term by integrating courses into our future planning process. David [Nash] and I feel this has to be good for all – customers, staff, work providers and the business itself.”
I-CAR congratulated the company on the achievement.
“The Gold Class status is the highest level of accreditation within the I-CAR Professional Development Program and highlights David Nash Smash Repairs’ commitment to having the skills and knowledge required to safely repair modern vehicles,” I-CAR said.
