The certification program was up to the customer. One of the dealerships mechanics would inspect the combine and make a list of everything that was broken, wore, etc on the combine. Then everything that was found to be in need of repair on the unit had to be fixed at the customers expense for parts and labor. Once this was all done the dealership and the customer would sign off that everything was satisfactory on the unit, and Case IH would then send a sticker to put on the unit. The certification is completely different then the Case IH 8010 campaigns that Case would send the combine off to be updated. Long story short, the certifications were voluntary and the campaigns were manditory.
