Hamilton, Ontario -- April 3, 2017 -- Nissan Canada has selected Certified Collision Care as the company’s exclusive strategic partner to administer and manage its new collision repair certification program and national network.
The Nissan Certified Collision Repair Network program will identify, certify and promote dealership and independent collision repair providers across all of Canada.
"We are very excited to partner with Nissan Canada to add the Nissan Certified Collision Repair Network to our certified shop's credentials,” says Leanne Jefferies, VP of Canadian Operations for Certified Collision Care. “Our joint-effort certification program provides top performing collision repairers an effective means to differentiate themselves in their market by aligning with the most powerful brands in the automotive industry.”
Participation in the Nissan Certified Collision Repair Network will be limited, and there will be a market lock-out restricting the number of Nissan certified facilities in each market area. Nissan program enrollment will begin April 19, 2017.
Details will be available online at certifiedcollisioncare.ca. For Certified Collision Care Providers that gain Nissan Dealer sponsorship and are not in a locked-out market, there is no additional fee to add Nissan Certification to their Certified Collision Care credentials.
Certified shops will receive special Nissan Certified Collision Repair Network signage and listing on the consumer-facing online shop locators as part of the integrated Certified Collision Care program.
Nissan Canada will be an integral strategic partner leveraging the joint-effort collision repair facility certification services, infrastructure and turnkey program offered by Certified Collision Care. A statement from Certified Collision Care says that by leveraging the existing certification process, Nissan is able to eliminate redundant costs, making certification more affordable for dealerships and independently owned repair businesses that can meet the program’s requirements.
A statement from the company says the Nissan Certified Collision Repair Network’s requirements are based upon the essential tools, equipment, training and facilities necessary to repair all Nissan vehicles back to manufacturer specifications.
