What is OEM Certification?

  • OEM certification is training provided by the Original Equipment Manufacturers to repair vehicles their way. Quality body shops must undergo manufacturer training to fix cars to OEM specifications. However, it’s an investment, and not all shops make it.
  • Most car owners aren’t aware there is a “right way” and “cheap way” to fix cars. Both methods sound correct, but only one of them prioritizes safety in a collision.
  • There are no laws requiring shops to follow OEM-repair guidelines; this is an important distinction to make.
  • It’s up to you to choose wisely and select a high-quality repair shop. When it comes to vehicle repair, your life is at stake.

Know your rights. Insurance companies allow you to take your vehicle to the repair facility of your choice.

To be part of a certified program, a collision repair center must be equipped with industry-leading diagnostic instruments, approved measuring equipment, spray booth systems, hand tools, spot welding apparatus and more. In short, we have always stood for the highest standards in the automotive industry-and we intend to keep it that way.


Manufactured for superior quality, safety, fit and finish, original OEM parts are the same as the parts that came with your vehicle – and are best capable of preserving your vehicle’s handling and performance. You have the right to request that your vehicle is restored with Original OEM Parts. Baker Collision Center sources factory parts directly through our dealership network.
