Local Auto Body Shops Teaming up with CR for Collision Repair Class

Written by Geneva Peppars – KAEF News

Local auto body shops are teaming up with College of the Redwoods Community Education in Eureka, CA, to offer the Auto Body Collision Repair Course, starting on Sept. 12. The course was developed in collaboration with Myrtle Auto Body, Quality Body Words, Fred's Body Shop, and Richard Borough from Master-Mind Alliance.

In an emotional presentation on July 19, Seattle’s beloved Walton family and a local hero, U.S. Navy veteran Gregory Wood, each received keys to new vehicles as part of a special event hosted by Service King Collision Repair Centers and GEICO.

On a typical day at Pacific Elite Collision Centers, Cortney Arthur might run through the shop’s production list, help write estimates, order parts or even detail cars. As the general manager of the company’s Downey East location in California, Arthur also spends time taking care of the insurance side of the business, keeping up with KPIs and ensuring the facility is compliant.

ASA Northwest members convened at the Clearwater Resort in Suquamish, WA  from June 22--25 for the association's 2017 Summer Retreat.

In response to members' requests, the Women's Industry Network (WIN®) hosted its first three regional events in Southern California, Chicago, IL and Atlanta, GA, on June 13 and 14.

In previous months, we published several articles concerning AB 1679 and its impact on the collision repair industry.
