FAQ About Certified Mechanics

You might have seen on our site that we have mechanics certified by ASE at our shop in Loveland. So what is ASE and how should it affect your vehicle maintenance choices? In today’s blog, we will address these questions and others.

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 technicians become certified by ASE?

From working on hybrid cars to auto parts, there are over 40 distinct ASE certification tests. To be certified by the ASE, technicians must get a passing score on one of these tests and complete two years of relevant work experience. Anyone who completes more than one test will be given Master status. ASE requires that everyone retakes their tests every five years to stay current with all changes.

What are the tests like?

By having a panel of working technicians, executives, manufacturers, and educators in the automotive industry write the exams, the ASE ensures quality and accuracy. The tests can usually be completed in one to two hours. Two of every three people who take one of these tests will pass on the first attempt.

Why is ASE certification important to you?

ASE certification allows mechanics to provide a higher level of service to their clients. Rather than just trusting the closest repair shop for your car’s repairs and maintenance, you can depend on someone you know can handle the work the right way.
