The CEI Group Inc. (CEI) announced it has earned Gold Class designation for excellence in automobile collision repair appraisal expertise from I-CAR.
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, led 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 technology in I-CAR’s Professional Development Program 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.
“We’re proud that I-CAR has confirmed what CEI and many of its fleet customers have long believed,” said John Wolford, CEI director of client and vendor services. “And that is that we are among the best in our industry in helping fleets save time and money while delivering high-quality, safe repairs.”
