About I-CAR Certifications


When you're looking for reliable auto body repair service, you might notice an I-CAR certification logo on some websites or in shop windows. This certification matters. There are plenty of auto body and collision repair shops promising quality service, but that doesn't mean their technicians are properly trained or qualified to restore your vehicle's appearance and structural integrity.
I-CAR certification is a quick and easy way for you to know that the person working on your car has the most up-to-date training and qualification available, so you can rest assured knowing the job will be done right.
I-CAR certificate is not given out lightly but must be earned through rigorous training and maintained by holding to a certain standard of excellence. When you see the I-CAR logo, you know the auto body shop is well-versed in state-of-the-art techniques and fully qualified to restore your vehicle to prime condition.
I-CAR not only provides essential training for technicians, but also for insurance providers, shop estimators and shop managers.
Once a shop's certified through I-CAR, it's an ongoing process. To continue displaying the I-CAR shield of excellence, employees there must pass annual training courses on numerous topics related to the newest repair techniques.
