Becoming an ASE-Certified Mechanic

Christian Brothers Automotive employs mechanics certified by ASE at our Tulsa shop. So what is ASE and how should their certification impact your vehicle care decisions? We will expound on this subject in today’s blog post.

What is ASE?

ASE stands for the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence. Right now, over 300,000 automotive technicians hold certifications from ASE.

How do mechanics receive ASE certification?

ASE has created more than 40 certification tests, spaning from basic car maintenance to working on school buses. In order to receive certification, applicants must pass at least one of these tests and finish two years of relevant work experience. Anyone who completes more than one test receives Master status. In order to stay up to date with all industry trends, certified mechanics must retake their tests every five years.

What are the tests like?

The certification tests are written by a staff of manufacturers, educators, working technicians, and executives in the automotive industry. They are made up of multiple choice questions and are typically completed in one to two hours. Two-thirds of the people who take one of these tests will pass on their first try.

Why is ASE certification important to you?

The combination of knowledge and experience that ASE-Certified professionals have will give you confidence in the quality of service and repairs you are provided. Instead of trusting the cheapest auto shop for your car’s repairs and maintenance, you can count on someone you know will handle the work the right way.
