Our Certifications

A view of Turk's body shop

At Turk’s Collision Center we want you to feel confident in our trained technicians. With our highly qualified and experienced technicians, we can guarantee that you will be happy with the results of your repairs. Quick turn-around times, a shuttle, and a lifetime warranty are all offered, when you work with Turk’s Collision. Our trained professionals have three certificates to prove it.

I-CAR Gold status

The I-CAR Gold status is only awarded to only 10% of collision repair shops. What this award means, is that our technicians have had up-to-date experiences with new and old cars. Ultimately, this helps them know the proper safety precautions within each make and model. When you bring your vehicle to our Gold Class shop, you can be confident our technicians have been trained on:
How and where to look for hidden damage that you may not see
What can be safely repaired and what needs to be replaced
How to inspect and repair air bags and seat belts
Current vehicle technologies and repair techniques

ASE Certified Technicians

The National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE), a non-profit organization, certifies the competence of individual technicians in all major technical areas, including collision repair. ASE certified technicians can work in all aspects of the car industry, due to their extensive and up-to-date knowledge. It’s highly recommended for technicians to become certified, because it shows that they understand the newer models and safety precautions that come with them. The ASE Certification test requires two years of on-site training, or one year training and a two-year degree in automotive repair. Two out of every three people who take the test pass on their first attempt. It’s a challenging, yet rewarding achievement. ASE certification recipients are required to take the test every five years to ensure their knowledge on current technologies and practices is sound.

Certified Technicians Build Trust

At Turk’s Collision, we take our trade seriously. Our highly trained auto body repair specialists wield leading industry credentials to ensure customers receive the finest service while maintaining our shop operations to the highest industry standards.


We’ve put in the extra effort and hold several top certifications especially suited for auto body repair and technical competencies through I-CAR and ASE What exactly do these credentials certify, and how do they impact the customer experience?


I-CAR Gold Status

The Inter-Industry Conference of Auto Collision Repairs (or I-CAR) compiles a vast wealth of auto-body repair knowledge and training resources. Their Gold Status certification draws from numerous fields and techniques, including:


  • The most effective damage assessment & risk reduction methods
  • Up-to-date insurance estimates & claims processes
  • Refined office management and business performance practices
  • The latest welding, finishing, and other repair technologies

All these considerations are made with the ultimate benefit of the customer in mind.


For example, to receive Gold Status certification, all structural repair technicians must undertake I-CAR’s collision repair training, and over 50% of a company’s non-structural technicians, finishers, and insurance estimators must receive I-CAR’s insurance training. When entrusting their vehicle to us, customers receive nothing less than the finest technical skills and industry competency.


ASE Certified Technicians

Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) certifications are some of the most widely trusted benchmarks for high-quality automotive repair, and that applies equally to collision repair.


Regulatory requirements for an ASE certificate require either two years of professional training or a two-year automotive repair degree with one year of professional experience. The candidate is then eligible to take one of 40 ASE certification tests, covering the most relevant sub-specialty for the technician.


Exactly which automotive certification your collision repair professional has is always an important question. Our ASE-certified technicians have fulfilled all requirements to take and pass the ASE collision repair test, indicating an industry-recognized sub-specialty for collision and auto body repairs.
