|I-CAR Gold Class Professionals®|
Recognizing Business Achievements
The I-CAR Gold Class Professionals® designation is among the highest recognitions for training available to businesses in the collision repair inter-industry and is designed to help the collision industry meet its changing needs. Businesses who have earned this designation not only achieve a high level of training for each employee, but also maintain annual training to provide their customers with efficient, safe, and high-quality services.
Be Recognized as an I-CAR Gold Class Professionals® Business
For a collision repair business to qualify for the I-CAR Gold Class Professionals® designation, it must declare a minimum of one I-CAR Platinum Individual® as a Role Representative in each of the following four roles:
Please Note- An employee may represent more than one role; however training will be required for each role they have declared. Role Representative designation may be completed online within the I-CAR Training Manager tool. Access the I-CAR Training Manager Guide for assistance. I-CAR Customer Care Representatives are available to answer your questions Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. CST. Call 800.422.7872, firstname.lastname@example.org.
All other employees who have not been declared as Role Representatives will only be required to complete a minimum of 6 credit hours of role-relevant training for their declared role in order to qualify; this training must be completed within a 12 month time-frame of the business applying for its designation.

Insurers and Other Businesses
Insurer or non-collision repair businesses can continue to qualify for the I-CAR Gold Class Professionals® designation under the former “5&2” rule through December, 2011. Information about a new program tailored specifically for businesses not directly involved with the physical repair will be available in the future. Like the program for collision repairers, it will recognize professional development training relevant to the declared role, therefore it is suggested that any new training taken be within the role-specific menu of courses.
