“We are looking forward to another successful year working with Sherwin-Williams Automotive to supply our collision professionals with the skills needed to write better estimates and improve profits,” said Brad Brahe, Toyota body shop development manager.

“Estimating Solutions for Profit” is a seven-hour, hands-on workshop that recently was updated and now provides estimators with the techniques, skills and information necessary to write more profitable estimates. The class comprises real world estimating scenarios and industry-specific issues pertaining to body shop operations and insurance company relations.

The damage estimators participating in Toyota’s updated estimator certification program will learn a more comprehensive approach to estimating, blueprinting the repair plan.


“Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes is proud to continue our partnership with the University of Toyota,” said Jason Crager, Sherwin-Williams OEM business development manager. “Sherwin-Williams strongly believes in supporting training programs that improve our industry and particularly collision shops’ bottom line.”  

The “Estimating Solutions for Profit” class is approved and accredited by the Automotive Management Institute (AMI) and offers 12 credits toward AMI’s diploma program.

“Estimating Solutions for Profit” will be available to all of Toyota’s 1,200 dealership partners nationwide, which represent approximately 450 collision centers within this dealer network.
