The Certified Collision Care program provides all qualified collision repairers the opportunity to attain multiple OEM Certifications in Canada within a single program, audit process and cost. In order to qualify, repairers must have the proper tools, equipment, training and facilities required to repair vehicles to OEM specifications and ensure a vehicle’s fit, finish, durability, functionality, value, and safety are preserved.  Certified Collision Care has strategic partnerships with FCA Canada (Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram, Fiat brands) and Ford Motor Company of Canada (Ford National Body Shop Network Certification), to manage and administer their OEM certification programs.
