"Sherwin-Williams continues to be a great partner by offering comprehensive training to the University of Toyota and our Certified Collision Centers,” says Jeff Hilton, Wholesale Parts & Collision Manager Parts & Service Marketing, Toyota Motor Sales, USA, Inc.

The workshop, B005 Collision Repair Estimating, comprises real-world estimating scenarios and industry-specific issues pertaining to body shop operations and insurance company relations. Attendees who participate in this estimating program will get hands-on experience with the techniques, skills and information necessary to write and negotiate more accurate (and profitable) estimates.

“This is our 14th year conducting the collision repair estimating workshops and they have proven to enhance both estimators’ and shop managers’ skills in all areas of writing accurate and profitable repair estimates,” adds Steve Feltovich, Manager of Business Consulting Services for Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes.
