Ankeny Auto Body 1 is currently going through the process to become certified to work on aluminum vehicles. We need to become I-Car Gold certified to receive this certification. From https://www.certifymyshop.com:
To ensure the next generation of vehicles are properly repaired, leading automakers are doing their part to ensure that body shops have the proper tools, equipment, training, and facility to repair vehicles to manufacturer specifications, ensuring the fit, finish, durability, value, and safety of the vehicle. Assured Performance works with the top Auto Manufacturers in the country to identify, certify, and promote these best-in-class repair businesses through one joint-effort program. This approach eliminates redundant costs and duplication between programs, saving time and money for all concerned.
Get Certified by Assured Performance, and you can be Officially Recognized by Ford, FCA, Nissan, Infiniti, GM, and Hyundai. With a program that is continually expanding and adding new OE partners, you can’t afford to miss out on the opportunity to be Certified Once and Recognized by Many.
