The Gold Class designation is awarded by I-CAR®, a not-for-profit training organization dedicated to improving the quality and safety of auto collision repair for the ultimate benefit of consumers.

Auto Body Hawaii in Kailua-Kona announced its achievement of Gold Class status, the industry standard for training that contributes to complete and safe vehicle repairs.

Only 10% of collision repair businesses currently meet the rigorous training requirements necessary to earn the Gold Class designation; Auto Body Hawaii the only repair facility on the Big Island to do so.

Gold Class shops are required to have every technician involved in collision repair take training that is specific to their roles. They must continue with ongoing training each year for the business to maintain its Gold Class recognition, including classes in new technology.

Today’s vehicles are increasingly sophisticated devices featuring an ever-growing number of components, parts and advanced lightweight materials.

The constant introduction of new vehicle technologies can result in repair procedures changing significantly from year to year, making current repair knowledge critical for the achievement of complete, safe and quality repairs.
