Award winners - Collision Repair Association

Environmental Awareness Award

Environmental issues are becoming more important and our industry does not enjoy the best reputation. We wish to reward the business who best demonstrates that they have significant regard for the environment. This will extend further than the segregation of waste products and include engaging with local authorities to ensure environmental compliance and best practices.

Commitment To Training Award

With fast changing technology and staff shortages, training is more important than ever. C-CAR points provide an ideal way of measuring commitment to training. We add points for apprentices employed, then divide the total for the year by the number of staff and then add in points for Bronze, Silver or Platinum Recognition which gives an objective measure.

Outstanding Achievement (Shop Upgrade) Award

The winner of this award will have shown commitment to the industry and to his business by investing in a significant upgrade. This will be more than an office refurb or a lick of paint and will involve building, equipment and overall appearance improvements.

Also in advertising – yellow pages, cards, brochures, and in the use of CRA promotional products. The buying patterns of finalists are checked in the CRA records for variety and volume.
