Christian Brothers is proud to employ mechanics certified by ASE at our shop in Flower Mound. What is ASE exactly and why should it be important to you? In this blog, we will answer these questions and others.
What is ASE?
ASE stands for the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence. They are a nonprofit organization that has been certifying technicians in the automotive industry since 1972.
How do technicians receive ASE certification?
ASE offers more than 40 certification tests that cover everything from exhaust systems and collision repair to hybrid cars. Mechanics must pass at least one of these tests and complete two years of related on-the-job experience to receive ASE certification. In order to stay current with all industry trends, ASE-Certified mechanics must retake their tests every five years.
What are the tests like?
To ensure quality and relevance, ASE uses a group of executives, manufacturers, educators, and working technicians in the automotive industry to write the exams. Tests are made up of multiple choice questions and are typically completed in one to two hours. Only two of every three people who take one of these tests will pass on their first try.
What does ASE certification mean to you?
ASE certification allows mechanics to provide a higher level of service to their clients. When you have your car repaired, make sure to look for this designation.
