Kia Canada Joins Certified Collision Care

Certified Collision Care is proud to announce that Kia Canada is our newest OEM partner within the Certified Collision Care joint effort OEM certification program. Kia Canada launched the Kia Certified Collision Repair Centre program on November 28, 2017 to ensure Kia owners can choose a Certified collision repair provider that has the proper tools, equipment, training and facility required to repair their vehicle to OEM specifications, and that will deliver a best in class collision repair experience.

As a Certified Collision Care Provider, you are now able to add Kia Certified Collision Repair Centre credentials to the other OEM Certifications your facility has achieved through the Certified Collision Care program. Certified shops are automatically recognized as Kia Certified Collision Repair Centres and will be able to leverage exclusive access to Kia OEM certification logos and signage, which are available on your business profile marketing tab.


Join us at the Certified Collision Care Clinic on January 25th 2018 from 1-4pm
Sandman Signature Toronto Airport Hotel, Toronto ON.

Certified Collision Care Providers and enrolled shops are invited to our first Canadian event, being hosted just before the CCIF Toronto Reception on January 25th.

Attend the Certified Collision Care Clinic to learn how to use the tools available to you as an OEM Certified shop, to become the most valuable Certified Collision Care Provider in your market, and continually increase the value of your business. This is your opportunity to mix and mingle with other Certified repairers and our OEM partners, and to enjoy presentations focused on “How to Maximize your OEM Certifications” by our team and our OEM partners. Don’t miss this exciting free event! Watch for your official invitation and registration link will be sent out in December.

OEM Certification Signs

Our success in adding new OEMs to our program is exciting and continues to build value to all stakeholders in our program. We are pleased to confirm that there continues to be no additional enrollment fee as we add new OEM partners and make additional OEM Certifications available to your business. It does, however, require us to initiate a nominal fee of $90 to acquire OEM Certification signs. OEM Certification signs can be ordered online, on your shop profile marketing tab.

We will provide renewal stickers to update your existing sign expiry dates automatically upon your successful recertification. New signs are available for purchase online, if desired.
