H&V Collision Center announced that it has achieved the title of ProFirst Certified collision repair facility.
Launched by American Honda Motor Co. in March 2015, the ProFirst Certified program identifies a select group of collision repair facilities that have committed to a high degree of training, have the proper tools and equipment, and exhibit professional customer care.
H&V Collision Center serves upstate New York and the Kingston areas. As of now, H&V Collision Center is the only ProFirst Certified repair facility to be serving its areas of coverage, with five of its seven locations officially certified.
The ProFirst Certified program requires that shops first achieve Gold Class status, the highest level of training afforded by I-CAR. Honda/Acura-specific training is also required for ProFirst Certification, which currently includes instruction on Using Honda/Acura Service Information, Honda and Acura High Strength Steel Repair, and Honda and Acura Restraint Systems. To keep up with technology, shop technicians will be required to complete additional Honda/Acura-specific classes as they’re introduced.
