As a physical damage claims leader, you can turn to I-CAR® for the best, most up-to-date technical training for your appraiser team.
Whether you're an insurer seeking to establish quality criteria for the collision repair facilities in your network or auto physical damage appraiser looking for a training program designed specifically to help you advance your career, I-CAR can provide a solution.
More and more insurers have established direct repair programs that require their network shops to earn Gold Class® recognition. Gold Class shops are committed to making quality repairs and providing excellent service, which improves their profitability, reduces cycle time and enhances customer satisfaction.
Insurance professionals continue to benefit from the Gold Class® for Insurance designation. It represents the achievement of progressive levels of training in I-CAR’s Professional Development ProgramTM for Auto Physical Damage Appraisers. This program can prepare APDAs with in-depth knowledge and skills they can utilize in their roles, as well as a competitive advantage in working with collision repair shops to ensure vehicles are repaired to the highest safety standards.
Insurers can achieve Gold Class at the corporate/company level or at the office/business location/department level. To achieve Gold Class, 60 percent of an insurance business’ appraiser staff must achieve at least PlatinumTM ProLevel 1® designation.
