Confirming Certification on OWC Thunderbay8

Ordered a couple Thunderbay8 (12tb x 8) and am wondering, because it's coming from OWC, using their drives - if they do the certification process for you. If so, is there a way to check?  If I plug in the Thunderbay8 and it appears as single volume, it's safe to say they did the certification before building the raid volume?

When you purchase drives with an enclosure, we do run them through a certification process before shipping. That is why we can offer a full 3 year warranty on these drives. Plus we create a RAID 5 volume (the most popular)

That's great! So if I want to switch it from RAID 5 to RAID 0 I don't need to re-certify correct?

No, as a certify ensures when you start, that the disks are fully functional.
