Subaru Training

Subaru now requires the I-CAR® Gold Class® designation in order for collision repair facilities to participate in the Subaru Certified Collision Network. By earning the Gold Class designation, collision repair facilities may increase their operational efficiencies, reduce cycle times, minimize repair mistakes and most importantly, make complete, safe and quality repairs.

For information on getting started with the Gold Class designation, visit Gold Class Professionals Business Recognition.

Professional Development Program

Subaru Certified Collision Network shops must obtain and maintain the I-CAR Gold Class designation through the I-CAR Professional Development Program.

The Professional Development Program (PDP) is role-relevant training and provides distinct training paths in industry-recognized Knowledge Areas. To earn Gold Class Recognition, businesses must achieve and maintain training across each of the major Collision Repair Roles:

Individuals progress from ProLevel 1 through ProLevel 3, with ongoing, annual training thereafter, to ultimately achieve and maintain advanced-level knowledge.

Based on an individual’s prior training and commitment to achievement, completion of ProLevel 1 can be achieved in 3-12 months. Completion of all ProLevel 1 requirements qualifies the individual for Platinum™ recognition.
