IMSB Certified Installers

Jake and Charles,
Is there a site with an up to date listing of all the Certified Installers of your IMSBs?
Is it possible to make it a Sticky on this forum?
I think it would be helpful for the Porsche owners as well as the Installers who went through the certification process.

Im not a mechanic just a Boxster owner who has a new LN triple row bearing, waiting for the warmer weathers of May.

There are no "Certified Installers" for the standard IMSB Retrofit, there are only "Preferred Installers". Preferred Installers are just those who have carried out the jobs that are willing to pay to advertise their services.

The "Certified Installers" are for the IMS Solution. These are only SEVEN installers across North America (5 in the US) that have been invited to the positions after attending both my classes. These Certified Installers must pass a rigorous evaluation and their practices are constantly scrutinized by Charles and I. Two weeks ago we revoked a certification from a shop that made one mistake by exercising poor judgment by retrofitting an engine that had experienced IMSB failure.
Here's the IMS Solution Certified Installer list:
Certified Installers | The IMS Solution

So, a preferred installer has no certification, its nothing more than a shop that has carried out an IMSB Retrofit and wishes to advertise that.

If it were my prerogative ALL shops that carry out the IMSB Retrofits would have to pass an evaluation to get any sort of advertisement or endorsement. But, thats why I am the Developer, not the seller.

Jake and Chuck thanks for the list, this should help Porsche owners in the future. Hopefully they will be able to find these list via this thread. Jake the clarification of terminology is also helpful.

Jake I just want to remind you that US FELLAS WAY UP HERE IN THE NORTH, can you see me, we are still part of North America..... brother, cousin,uncle! haaaaa.
So from your certified list you actually have 7 certified in North America, 8 counting yourselves, good work.
