Power Smash Repairs in Mittagong, NSW has been awarded I-CAR Gold Class Collision status.
Tommy and Joe Martinovic, Directors of Power Smash Repairs, embarked on the training programme to allow the business to keep up-to-date on repair techniques as technology quickly evolves.
“We decided to enter the I-CAR Road to Gold programme because we thought it would be a good way to maintain and further our skills with the latest technologies that are ever changing in the automotive industry. The online virtual training is an excellent option especially as we are located in a rural area, where the closest major cities are an hour’s drive away,” they said.
“The experience was very good, and the whole process was very easy – from online enrolment to the online virtual training. It also helped when all training was able to be done from the comfort of our own workshop and not having to travel distances. The staff particularly enjoyed learning about the new technologies that are coming out on cars such as steel strength and the structure of them. Our refinishers were also involved in the programme, receiving product specific training from Glasurit that worked towards our Gold Class certification.”
I-CAR congratulated the Power Smash Repairs team on the achievement.
“They have proven that location isn’t a barrier when it comes to professional development for their team,” the organisation said. “Participation in online virtual training and working with an I-CAR Industry Training Alliance partner allowed them to complete the role-relevant training required for the Gold Class accreditation. Power Smash Repairs’ commitment to professional development will ensure safety and quality for all their customers.”
