What is ASE?
ASE is the acronym for the National Institute for “Automotive Service Excellence”. Since 1972 this independent non-profit organization has moved to improve the quality of automotive repair and service thru precise testing and certifying of automotive professionals.
What Does ASE Do?
ASE advocates excellence in automotive repair and service. There are over 300,000 Automotive Technician and Service Professionals who hold ASE Certification. ASE Certified Technicians work in every aspect of the automotive service industry. It certifies automotive technicians and vehicle service professionals. It does not certify the auto repair shop.
Why Does ASE Exist?
Specifically, ASE exists for the protection of the automotive service consumer, auto repair shop owner and the automotive technician. They test and certify automotive professionals in order for the shop owner and service customer can better gauge the technician’s level of understanding and expertise before contracting the technician’s services. They certify the automotive technician professional in order to demonstrate their technical knowledge. ASE Certification testing will result in peace of mind for service managers and customers.
How Does ASE Certification Work?
In conjunction with passing an ASE Certification test, technicians must have at least two years of “OJT” or on the job training or one year of OJT and a two-year degree in automotive repair in order to qualify for ASE Certification.
The exams are very difficult. On average, only two out of every three test-takers pass this certification exam on the first attempt. To remain an ASE certified professional service technician must be retest every five (5) years. The obvious reason for the retesting is to keep up with ever advancing automotive technology.
Who Writes The ASE Certification Tests?
ASE Certification tests are written by a national panel of veteran automotive industry professionals and executives, including technicians currently working in the automotive industry, auto manufacturers, aftermarket manufacturers, and educators.
Exams are categorized by sub-specialty such as automobile, medium and heavy truck, truck equipment, school bus, collision repair, and more. There are over 40 exams each designed to address the automotive service technician’s knowledge of job-related skills.
