FAQ About ASE-Certified Mechanics

At Christian Brothers, you’ll find ASE-Certified mechanics for all your car’s maintenance and repairs. What does ASE stand for? What does this mean for your vehicle care choices? Let’s dig deeper into this subject in today’s blog post.

What is ASE?

ASE is short for the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence. Since 1972, this organization has been testing and certifying automotive technicians.

How do mechanics become certified by ASE?

There are over 40 ASE certification tests, spaning from truck equipment to collision repair. Mechanics must pass at least one of these tests and have two years of related on-the-job experience to be certified by the ASE. ASE requires that everyone retakes their tests every five years to stay current with new developments.

What are the tests like?

A panel of manufacturers, educators, working technicians, and executives in the automotive industry write the tests. Tests are made up of multiple choice questions and are typically completed in under two hours. Two of every three people who take one of these tests pass on their first attempt.

Why should you care about ASE certification?

By selecting ASE-Certified mechanics, you’ll have the privilege of working with professionals who are both experienced and knowledgeable. Instead of trusting the closest auto shop for your car’s repairs and maintenance, you can depend on someone you know can handle the work correctly.
