Are service writers required to be certified?

Agency: State

Whoever diagnoses or repairs a vehicle in an area that requires mechanic certification must be appropriately certified.

Service writers are not required to be certified if they greet customers, initiate paperwork, and give estimates for diagnosis and repair, as long as the actual diagnosis and repairs are made by properly certified mechanics.
