Mitchell, Axalta partner to launch training program for commercial truck repairers

The companies say the program will help repairers streamline the appraisal process for medium- and heavy-duty trucks.

Mitchell is collaborating with Axalta Coating Systems, a coatings company, to introduce a new training program, “Truck Fleet Damage Analysis and Estimating,” to provide repairers with instruction on how to streamline the appraisal process for collision-damaged medium- and heavy-duty trucks as well as optimize paint profitability.

Available quarterly through Axalta’s Refinish Academy, the first training program is scheduled for June 6 in Concord, N.C., According to the company, the program combines Mitchell’s knowledge in commercial, passenger and specialty vehicle estimating with Axalta’s coatings suppliers to help facility owners, managers, estimators and parts personnel enhance their appraisal skills. The companies say the day-long program covers:  

  • Trends impacting commercial trucks and their proper, safe repair
  • Strategies to enhance estimate and repair planning accuracy and efficiency
  • Best practices for estimate writing, reporting and documentation
  • Coating advancements and their impact on profits
