How to get a SPIN

Each individual who attends Collision Repair & Refinish Instructor-Led Training must have a Secure Personal Identification Number (SPIN). A SPIN is also required to take online e-learning modules, and is used to track an individual’s training accomplishments. Toyota/Lexus Dealership Service, Parts and Collision Center Managers should be aware of the following:

  1. Toyota/Lexus Dealership Service Managers and Wholesale Parts Managers are authorized to sponsor Independent Affiliate Collision Repair Center Employees into Toyota/Lexus Collision Repair & Refinish Training.
  2. The sponsoring dealership will require a completed SPIN application to start the registration process for Independent Affiliate Collision Center Employees. The application link is provided below.
  3. SPIN registration must be completed for each training applicant. Be sure to provide a reliable mailing address for the identification card.
  4. Adding Independent Affiliate Collision Center Employees to Staffmaster will not impact dealership rankings and awards.
