ASE’s mission is to improve the quality of vehicle repair and service through the testing and certification of repair and service professionals.
Here is how the process of ASE certification works: Prospective candidates register for and take one or more of ASE’s 40-plus exams. Before passing at least one exam, and after providing proof of 2 years of relevant work experience, the test taker becomes ASE certified. Certification, however, does not remain for life. To remain certified, those with the ASE Certification must be retested every 5 years. The exams stress knowledge of job-related skills.
The tests are not an easy task; approximately one out of three test takers fails. Motorists benefit from ASE certification. It is a valuable accomplishment 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.
