Toyota Opens New State-of-the-Art Training Center


There’s only one correct way to learn how to properly repair a Toyota vehicle after a collision and that’s by getting trained through Toyota. And now, with Toyota’s new state-of-the-art Collision Repair & Refinish Training Facility in Plano, Texas there are even more training opportunities for you and your staff, in addition to the classes offered at the California, New Jersey and Florida collision training centers.

“This is a great opportunity for us to expand our training—we’ve added a key location to help cover our people in the Midwest. It encourages participation by Toyota dealership technicians as well as those employed by  independent repair facilities who work with a sponsoring Toyota dealership,” says Chris Chartron, Manager, Toyota Motor North America, Quality, Collision Repair & Refinish Training.

“When students arrive, they’ll discover a state-of-the-art facility that’s stocked with the latest equipment and supplies. Plus, the facility itself is very impressive, with plenty of space and lots of natural light—it’s one of the nicest training centers in the country.”

The Texas Collision Repair & Refinish raining Center offers the exact curriculum as the other Toyota training centers and is staffed by instructors who hold ASE Master Certified Collision Repair & Refinish certification.

The Toyota Collision Repair & Refinish Training Center is a logical choice for training because:

  • Our instructors know the products better than anyone else, and they have direct access to the factory for more complex issues.
  • Technicians learn how to restore vehicles according to factory repair guidelines—that’s the best assurance that repaired vehicles will safely perform as originally intended.
  • These courses give participants hands on repair experience.
  • Properly trained technicians save shops time and money because repairs are performed right the first time.

Everyone who attends Collision Repair & Refinish instructor-led training, or takes online e-learning modules, must have a Secure Personal Identification Number (SPIN). Independent facilities can learn about how to be sponsored by a Toyota dealership and how to obtain a SPIN by going to:

The bottom line: The only right way to fix a Toyota is to get the right training—and now, that training is available at four locations nationwide, including the new Collision Repair & Refinish Training Center in Plano, Texas.
