Penske First HD Truck Company to Receive I-CAR Gold Class
June 21, 2019—Penske Truck Leasing is the first-ever heavy-duty company to receive I-CAR's Gold Class designation at a pair of Georgia truck collision repair facilities, in Norcross and Lithia Springs.
The process involved:
- Identifying Penske technician roles and mapping those roles to I-CAR's automotive Gold Class recognition roles.
- Scheduling in-person assessments to confirm their knowledge levels and focus training on areas where it was specifically needed.
- More than a dozen online, live and virtual courses.
"We applaud Penske Truck Leasing for the company's foresight, dedication and commitment to implementing this comprehensive collision repair training program for the heavy-duty truck market," said Nick Notte, I-CAR senior vice president of sales. "I-CAR believes there is broad segment demand for this type of training, and we intend to build a training protocol that will support the necessary skills and knowledge for heavy-duty repairs."
