Auto Body Shop Collision Repair Certification: What It Means

Interior of Keri Coach Works Body Shop in Westbury, NY

“Excellence is never an accident. It is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, and intelligent execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives—choice, not chance, determines your destiny.”
—Aristotle


In any field of human endeavor, certain principles of excellence remain constant. These include:

  • Love what you do.
  • Knowledge is power.
  • Build on your experience.
  • Competence is an endless quest.
  • Improve your craft daily.
  • Never stop learning.

Striving to achieve these principles is what sets successful individuals and businesses apart from all the others. This truth applies to all types of work, whether you are a custodial worker, a heart surgeon, or the CEO of Fortune 500 company.

And in this age of super-specialization, it especially applies to today’s auto body collision repair shops. Long gone are the days when any reasonably competent mechanic could repair a damaged vehicle of any make and model. Nowadays, the sheer variety of technologies, materials, engineering, and even software that goes into building 21st-century cars makes such generalized knowledge less than useless.

At Keri Coach Works, we strive every day to demonstrate our dedication to excellence in service to all our customers. To that end, we have built our business by investing in the right tools and the proper training for all our collision repair technicians, so they are able to bring your damaged vehicle back to like-new condition—without compromising safety, warranty, or resale value.

As of now, the number of vehicle makes/models that we are qualified and certified to repair has grown to include the following.
