Technical Refinish Courses Receive Ontario Insurance Accreditation


PPG Canada Inc. has announced that it has received accreditation from the Registered Insurance Brokers of Ontario (RIBO) for several of its technical CertifiedFirst courses for collision repair insurance brokers.
Keith Burns, the manager for CertifiedFirst is quoted as saying “Not only do the brokers receive credits for attending but they have the opportunity to experience the operation of a Collision Repair facility first hand.” These courses are accredited as technical and the appropriate documentation is provided for course completion. The following courses received accreditation:
Collision Repair for Insurers (3 hours credit): Includes a step-by-step guided shop tour to present the entire auto repair process: from estimation through repair and refinish to final vehicle delivery. Insurers will learn more about parts, usage, and potential delays to help you set realistic expectations with policyholders.
Vehicle Inspection for Insurers (3 hours credit): Provides practical information that can help the insurers determine insurance issues associated with a vehicle and how those issues relate to safety. The course covers what to look for in the areas of body, frame, glass, identification, and repairs as well as possible violations, fraud, and other issues that might require a closer look.
Loss Control Windshield Repair (2 hours): Presents repair ratios, how they affect insurance company’s bottom line, and how windshield repair can be beneficial to insurer, a repair shop, and the policyholder. Through instruction, and a live demonstration, the insurer will gain the knowledge needed to identify quality repair and qualified repair providers.
