"With an increased sensitivity to safety and environmental issues, Sterling is taking a front-line position in the training of tomorrow’s technicians on these important topics. Sterling Autobody fully understands its responsibility in the development of our future techs to ensure quality vehicle repairs. Our ‘Techs of Tomorrow’ Safety & Environmental Training Series is the first step to our being hands on in support of both our schools and the future of the auto body repair industry.”

Collision Repair Education Foundation Executive Director Scott Kruger said, “We would like to thank Sterling Autobody Centers and ERS for including the Collision Repair Education Foundation and the collision repair programs we support in this training.
