Auto Body Shop Certifications

Cherokee Collision Center is committed to continuous improvement of the auto body repair process and part of verifying our progress is certifications.  A certification in a particular make of vehicle by no means we are not fully equipped to repair that vehicle, but a certification indicates we have been rigorously vetted and that brand endorses our ability to repair your vehicle to factory specifications.  Below are some of our certifications and a bit of information about why each one is important.
