Why Certified? Why Now?
Honda is committed to providing safety for everyone, in the way Honda and Acura cars are built, and in the way they are repaired after a collision. Due to the increasing application of on-board safety, collision avoidance technology, and advanced materials in vehicle manufacturing, the collision repair industry and repair technology are evolving with increasing speed and intensity.
Today, it takes a highly-qualified collision shop to properly repair a Honda or Acura automobile – one with training, skill, the proper tools and equipment and the latest repair information. It takes a shop dedicated to their craft – a ProFirst Certified shop. Is your shop ready to meet the evolution of collision repair head-on? Is your shop ready to take the next step – to ProFirst Certified?
