Sherwin-Williams to Offer Estimating Solutions for Profit Class through Lexus College

Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes Corp. (SWAFC) announced it will continue to offer the Estimating Solutions for Profit class as part of its Lexus College estimator certification program.

Estimating Solutions for Profit, a seven-hour, hands-on workshop, provides estimators with the skills and information necessary to write profitable estimates, SWAFC says. The class comprises real world estimating scenarios and industry-specific issues pertaining to Lexus body shop operations and insurance company relations.

The damage estimators participating in Lexus College’s new estimator certification program will learn about a new, comprehensive approach to estimating called “blueprinting” the repair plan.

“Sherwin-Williams’ Estimating Solutions for Profit class is a great fit for our Lexus estimators because it integrates the Lexus ‘Customer First’ philosophy and raises the customer’s experience level in the Lexus Collision Center,” said Matt Monahan, Lexus senior dealer operations consultant.  

“Our partnership with Toyota Motor Sales USA has provided an effective training program for their dealership collision center estimators for the past eight years, and we are excited to extend the Estimating Solutions for Profit program to Lexus College,” said Steve Feltovich, SWAFC business consulting services manager.

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

SWAFC’s Estimating Solutions for Profit course will be available to all of Lexus’s 200 dealership partners nationwide, which represent approximately 55 collision centers within its dealer network. Non-Lexus dealerships or independent body shops’ estimators interested in attending a SWAFC’s Estimating Solutions for Profit class can visit www.sherwin-automotive.com/Training/TrainingCourses.aspx for more information and a class schedule.
