Subaru to Open Certified Network to Independents
Dec. 12, 2018—Subaru of America, Inc. announced on Wednesday that the Subaru Certified Collision Network (SCCN) will open enrollment to independent collision centers across the country starting Jan. 1, 2019.
After a pilot in March 2018, and retailer enrollment in June 2018, Subaru is ready to broaden the availability of the SCCN. Subaru has partnered with Wadsworth International's team of experienced business growth professionals to help administer the initiative; ensuring that each collision center passes a rigorous audit and meets all necessary criteria. This includes I-CAR Gold Class certification, proper tools specifications, outstanding customer service, accurate documentation procedures, and the use of Genuine Subaru Collision Parts which are identically engineered to meet the same strict safety and quality standards as the original equipment (OE) used to manufacture the vehicle.
One key differentiator that sets the SCCN apart from other vehicle manufacturers' certification programs is the requirement that all certified collision centers participate in at least one volunteer event throughout the year with a local 501(c)3 non-profit of their choosing.
