The Rallye name carries with it a reputation of excellence in the automotive community on Long Island. So it is no surprise that Rallye Collision Center has achieved I-CAR’s Gold Class recognition – the highest role-relevant training level that a collision repair center can achieve according to I-CAR – the leader in collision repair industry standards. This designation was achieved through rigorous training to acquire and maintain a high-level of knowledge and skills pertaining to the key roles of the collision repair profession. Rallye Collision is proud of our team for their commitment to offer the very highest level of auto body collision repair service on Long Island.
Formed in 1979, I-CAR, the Inter-Industry Conference on Auto Collision Repair, is an international non-profit entity dedicated to providing information, knowledge and skill training required to perform quality, safe, and complete auto body repairs. With the rapid advent of new vehicle technology and materials entering the market at a rapid pace, collision repair professionals face a challenge to keep up and get ahead of the emerging technologies in order to provide services that meet the market’s demands. New CAFE standards imposed on automakers are producing lighter and more fuel-efficient vehicles that utilize plastics, aluminum and lightweight alloys that achieve the new standards, but are more difficult to repair than steel. Combined with more electronic systems embedded in nearly every vehicle component, damage from a collision affects many more areas that are difficult to detect and the need for specialized training has intensified.
Rallye Collision Center’s commitment to meet the challenges of repairing new technology led us to participate in I-CAR’s Professional Training Development Program, that focuses on four key auto body repair roles: Estimator, Non-structural technician, Steel Structural Technician, and Refinish Technician.Each role must meet and maintain high industry standards in knowledge and skills. When the role’s designated level has been met, the team member is awarded with the i-CAR Platinum Recognition. Further training and commitment to maintain a high level of performance acorss several areas within the shop results in being designated a Gold Class® Collision Center.
