Audi Australia is pleased to announce a new training programme for Australian technicians, for local body repair.
This new programme provides an industry-leading development pathway for body technicians, as well as providing a local cost-effective training and certification programme for the Audi Approved Repairer network.
Audi Australia and AUDI AG, in partnership with I-CAR Australia and the SAPE Group, have co-developed a programme that not only includes international Audi recognition, but also, I-CAR international certification and accreditation. The programme utilises a local state-of-the-art training facility in Sydney, with Audi approved special tooling and equipment.
“This partnership not only provides body technicians with the best platform to improve their knowledge and skills, but it supports our Audi Approved Repairer network with a sophisticated programme that ensures our team is equipped with skills that lead the industry,” said Jerome Figuiere, Aftersales Director at Audi Australia.
“I-CAR Australia has a long-standing relationship with Audi and this recent announcement continues to show our mutual commitment to delivering up-to-date, relevant body technician training to all Audi Approved Repairers,” said Mark Czvitkovits, CEO of I-CAR Australia.
Upon completion of the programme, technicians receive joint certifications from Audi and I-CAR Platinum Individual, which supports Audi Approved Repairers to fulfil the requirement to become an I-CAR Gold Class repairer.
