Spotlight on Gold Class®

Straightline Collision is designated Gold Class® by I-CAR, a not-for-profit training organization founded by the collision repair industry and dedicated to consumer safety.  Gold Class® award criteria are rigorous; only 20% of collision repair shops currently have met the criteria. Vehicle technology continues to advance, offering new complexities and challenges related to functional components, parts, and materials. Escalating complexity requires highly trained specialists prepared to meet present and future challenges. As a leading provider, Straightline Collision meets the stringent program criteria. When you see the Gold Class® logo, you can be confident in your choice of a collision repair shop in Staten Island. It means a business has met the industry’s standard for training that contributes to complete, safe, and quality repairs. Read on to understand how this highly sought distinction benefits our collision repair consumers.

About I-CAR

The unibody vehicle design was introduced in the 1970s and had a significant impact on collision repair.  This design evolution was followed with an industry response in order to ensure that those involved in collision repair have the information, knowledge, and skills needed to perform complete, safe, and quality repairs.  In 1979, the Inter-Industry Conference on Auto Collision Repair (I-CAR) was formed by representatives from each industry segment: collision repair, insurance, OEMs, education, suppliers, and related industry services.  I-CAR has grown since then:

Provides training to almost 9,000 collision repair businesses

Trains 56,000 collision repair technicians

Service is provided by 2,600+ volunteers, instructors, and staff

Presents 178+ courses delivered live, online, and virtual

Operates internationally through partnerships in Canada, New Zealand, and Australia

I-CAR Gold Class® Supporting Organizations:

The following organizations support and endorse the high standards and requirements of Gold Class®.  For your automobile repair services or auto collision repair, it may help to understand what it means for an organization to support the Gold Class® program. Today’s vehicles are so technologically advanced that technicians must have not only appropriate advanced training, but also access to manufacturers’ information and data. The original equipment manufacturer (OEM) support ensures that Straightline Collision customers seeking auto collision repair in Staten Island will have access to the current data and information needed to return their vehicle back to its original condition.
