I-CAR Gold Class is the highest designation an auto collision repair business can attain, one that assures you that the shop is equipped, trained, and prepared to handle repairs on vehicles incorporating the latest materials and technologies. Only 10% of body shops nationwide currently qualify for Gold Class designation, and Gold Coast Auto Body is one of only a handful in the entire Chicagoland area.

What does it take to become Gold Class? To give you an idea, check out I-CAR’s training regimens for each of the following positions: Refinish Technician, Steel Structural Technician, Non-Structural Technician, and Estimator. As a Gold Class shop, we are required to have technicians on staff who have achieved “Platinum” status – I-CAR’s highest individual training level – in each of those areas. That represents an enormous investment of time and money on our part, but one that’s well worth it for any body shop that aspires to be the best in the business.
