Gold Class Shop, Platinum Technicians

There are a lot of changes facing the collision repair industry in the immediate future.  With demands for more fuel efficient vehicles, the technology and materials that will be used to create these modern, lighter designs will be constantly evolving.  In addition to the materials, electronics are now an integral part found throughout a vehicle design. The industry is a rapidly developing environment, with more and more complex innovations. That means that the knowledge and skills of collision repair technicians and the equipment used by auto body shops will also need to keep up with these changes to the industry.

In order to achieve Gold  Class status, four of our staff members have also been designated Platinum® technician status in the areas of Estimator, Non-Structural Technician, Steel Structural Technician and Refinish Technician.   Each area of training is tailored to the specific role, builds on current skills and knowledge and is constantly evolving to reflect updates in the industry.

The I-CAR Professional Development Program™ is designed by experts in the collision repair industry to meet the industry’s present and upcoming requirements. To maintain this status, Shannon’s Auto Body staff must undergo continual role-relevant professional development training every year.

The Highest Level of Training Recognized in the Collision Repair Industry

The I-CAR ® Gold Class™ program is the highest level of training recognized in the collision repair industry with only 10% of collision repair shops holding this status.  To achieve Gold Class recognition, Shannon’s Auto Body staff worked through a variety of I-CAR Professional Development Program™ training in the collision repair field (ProLevel®) over a 12 month period. Every technician who has a role in repairing your vehicle has gone through this training program.
