CEI—a fleet driver management company—has earned Gold Class designation for excellence in automobile collision repair appraisal expertise from I-CAR. I-CAR’s Gold Class status is the highest role-relevant training achievement recognized by the collision repair industry, and has been awarded to only 10% of the industry's repair shops. CEI provides accident repair management services to automotive fleets all across North America. The I-CAR designation was earned by CEI's Quality Control Department, lead by Greg Neuman, which consists of 15 licensed physical damage appraisers who review every repair estimate for savings on parts, labor and ensuring that the repair is safe and meets industry standards. To earn Gold Status, appraisers must take courses in the latest repair techniques and pass a rigorous series of tests. The courses cover every aspect of collision repair, including repairs on hybrid vehicles, advanced materials like aluminum and high-strength steel, safety restraint systems, electrical damage, refinishing , identifying loss recovery potential, and assessing and repairing damage due to hail, theft and vandalism.
