What is ASE?
ASE is an acronym for the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence. Since 1972, ASE has been testing and certifying technicians in the automotive industry.
How do mechanics obtain ASE certification?
There are over 40 ASE certification tests, ranging from collision repair to auto parts. In order to receive certification, applicants must get a passing score on one of these tests and finish two years of relevant on-the-job experience. ASE requires that all certified technicians retake their tests every five years.
What are the tests like?
The test are written by a staff of educators, technicians, executives, and manufacturers in the automotive industry. Tests consist of multiple choice questions and are typically completed in under two hours. Two-thirds of the people who take one of these tests pass on their first attempt.
What does ASE certification mean to you?
Certification from ASE allows mechanics to provide a higher standard of service to their customers. When you have your vehicle serviced or repaired, keep an eye out for this designation.
