Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A. and Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes have announced the 2012 schedule for the annual Toyota Certified Collision Center estimating program, with Sherwin-Williams continuing as one of the facilitators for the program’s training workshops. Conducted through the University of Toyota, the workshops will be held in two locations across the United States, including:
• Boston, MA on May 16
• Houston, TX on August 8
"We are very pleased that Sherwin-Williams continues to support Toyota Training and our Certified Collision Centers,” says Brad Brahe, Toyota Body Shop Development Manager.
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 more accurate estimates.
“This is our 10th year providing the collision repair estimating workshop and they have proven to enhance estimators’ and shop managers’ skills in all areas of writing accurate and profitable repair estimates,” said Steve Feltovich, Manager of Business Consulting Services for Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes.
There is no workshop enrollment charge for Toyota Certified Collision Centers’ personnel. Non-Toyota Certified Collision Centers’ attendees will be charged an enrollment cost of $295. For information on Sherwin Williams training courses, visit
