I-CAR Gold Class

I-CAR Australia is part of the global I-CAR organisation. Their vision is to raise the collision repair industry’s quality through knowledge and skills to ensure the ultimate benefits to the consumer. The Australian program focuses on providing ongoing post-certification education and training for the entire panel beating and collision repair industry.

McCarthy Panel Works is proud to be the first, certified I-CAR Australia Gold Class collision repairer in Queensland. We obtained this certificate in 2016 and have maintained it since. We are honoured to the first in Queensland, and it pleases us to see so many other Queensland and Mackay-based collision repairers follow suit.

Being a Gold Class Collision Repairer means the team at McCarthy Panel Works has obtained the highest role-relevant training accreditation, recognised by the collision repair industry, in Australia. For our customers and referral partners, this training is their assurance of our repairs’ quality and safety.

All McCarthy Panel Works employees, from the owners to the repair team to the administration team, undergo regular training from I-CAR Australia. With the vast number of new vehicles entering the market each year, this training ensures that our skills and advice are as up to date as possible.

But to obtain the Gold Class, we had to go that step further to ensure that each of our lead technicians underwent extensive training. And every other repair-team member has also completed at least four training points.
