The I-CAR Gold Class designation ensures that professionals are trained to have the knowledge and skills required to provide customers with efficient, safe and high-quality collision repairs.

Audi relies on I-CAR to make certain specific training programs available to collision repair technicians. The courses listed below have been reviewed and approved by Audi and are only available through I-CAR. Effecetive June 1st, 2020 the following I-CAR training courses are required for all new shops applying to the Audi program. Participants in the program, whether fully certified or in-process prior to June 1st, are not required to follow this training path.
