TECHNICIAN CERTIFICATION

Automotive Service Excellence

Until the early 1970s, consumers had no way to distinguish between incompetent and competent mechanics. In response to this need, the independent, non-profit National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) was established in 1972.

ASE's mission is to improve the quality of vehicle repair and service through the testing and certification of repair and service professionals.

At present there are over 420,000 professionals with current certifications. They work in every segment of the automotive service industry: car and truck dealerships, independent garages, fleets, service stations, franchises, and more.

Here's how ASE certification works: Prospective candidates register for and take one or more of ASE's 40-plus exams. The tests are grouped into specialties for automobile, medium/heavy truck, truck equipment, school bus, and collision repair technicians as well as engine machinists, alternate fuels technicians, parts specialists, collision damage estimators and auto service consultants.

Upon passing at least one exam and after providing proof of two years of relevant work experience, the test taker becomes ASE certified. Certification, however, is not for life. To remain certified, those with ASE credentials must be retested every five years.

The tests, which are conducted twice a year at over 700 locations around the country, are administered by ACT, known for its academic and occupational testing programs. The exams stress knowledge of job-related skills. They are no cinch to pass; approximately one out of three test takers fails.

Consumers benefit from ASE certification. It is a valuable yardstick by which to measure the knowledge and skills of individual technicians as well as the commitment to quality of the repair facility employing ASE-certified professionals.

ASE-certified professionals usually wear blue and white ASE insignia and carry credentials listing their exact area(s) of expertise (brakes, engine repair, etc.), while employers often display their technicians' credentials in the customer waiting area.

Consumers should look for facilities that display the ASE Blue Seal of Excellence© logo.

    If you run across this shop, consider yourself beyond blessed. I've never met a company that cared so much about not only the cars, but their customers well-being. They went above and beyond to make sure my car was properly fixed and the repairs are done in a great timely manner. I would like to thank EVERYONE at the company for treating me with such a warm welcome and exceeding my expectations. I TRULY APPRECIATE IT ESPECIALLY MR.TIMMY, THE OWNER, & THE LADIES MS. RACHEL, & MS. TAMMY at the desk. I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS COMPANY TO ANYONE because they really have good intentions on taking care of you and making sure you're back on the road safe. May God continue to bless this company and everyone there. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!
