Christian Brothers Automotive employs mechanics certified by ASE at our shop in Hutto. So what is ASE and what does their certification mean for your vehicle? We will expound on this subject in today’s blog.
What is ASE?
ASE is short for the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence. More than 300,000 automotive technicians currently have certifications from ASE.
How do mechanics become certified by ASE?
There are over 40 ASE certification tests, spaning from basic car maintenance to working on school buses. Applicants must pass at least one of these tests and have two years of related on-the-job experience to gain ASE certification. Those who complete more than one test receives Master status. These certification tests must be retaken every five years to ensure certified technicians are current with recent developments.
What are the tests like?
A group of technicians, executives, manufacturers, and educators in the automotive industry create the tests. Most people take one to two hours to finish an exam. Two of every three people who take ASE certifications pass on their first try.
Why should you care about ASE certification?
By selecting mechanics who are ASE-Certified, you will have the privilege of working with professionals who are both knowledgeable and experienced. Rather than just trusting the cheapest repair shop for your car’s repairs and maintenance, you can depend on someone you know can handle the work correctly.
