Scott Simmons Visits ASA-OH for ‘Estimating Best Practices’ Seminar

Written by

ASA-OH hosted Scott Simmons of Collision Advice for two Estimating Best Practices seminars.

On May 10, Simmons presented at Ohio Auto Kolor in Columbus and the May 11 event was held at the Education Service Center in Independence, Ohio.


“The event was well attended at both locations,” said Matt Dougher, ASA-OH executive director. “Attendees said the information provided will help them better serve their customers and will make their shops more profitable.”


Dougher said Simmons held an excellent eight-hour course on estimates. All who attended earned six I-CAR credits and 11 Ami credit.


“Scott covered how the latest ADAS systems have changed the way our industry writes a proper estimate,” Dougher added.


The seminar focused on Collision Advice’s proven approach to writing a repair plan for a safe and proper repair—beginning with scanning the vehicle and researching OEM procedures. Simmons then guided attendees through the damage-analysis process. He completed a 100 percent disassembly and properly documented the damage to assist with insurer negotiations and reimbursements.


“ASA Ohio has been a leader in providing continuing education for the automotive repair industry for decades,” Dougher said. “Continuing education is the key to future success and profitability.”
