The ProFirst body shop recognition program from American Honda Motor Co., Inc. requires the I-CAR Gold Class Professionals designation as part of its program requirements, in addition to completion of the Honda/Acura-specific I-CAR course, Collision Repair for Honda and Acura Vehicles (HON01e).

Through earning the Gold Class designation, collision repair facilities can increase operational efficiencies, reduce cycle times, minimize repair mistakes, and most importantly, complete safe repairs.

The ProFirst body shop recognition program is available to both dealer-owned and independent collision repair facilities.


To qualify, and continue to qualify for the ProFirst body shop recognition program, two requirements must be met:

1. Achieve and maintain the Gold Class designation and have at least one person employed at the collision repair facility who has completed the I-CAR training course, Collision Repair for Honda and Acura Vehicles (HON01e).

2. Maintain a minimum of four (4) transactions per month (12 in a 3-month period) with a Honda and /or Acura dealer through OEConnection’s CollisionLink product.

To register for the ProFirst program, go to profirst.honda.com or profirst.acura.com. Both URLs will go to the same site and there is no need to register twice.
