In 1972, a national non-profit program called the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) was established to test and certify individual technicians in all major technical areas of repair and service. The organization was created to help consumers distinguish between competent and incompetent mechanics using difficult national tests that prove their technical skills and knowledge.
Becoming an ASE-certified mechanic requires passing at least one exam and fulfilling two years of work experience. Specialty exams cover major areas of repair including: Manual Drive Train and Axles, Engine Repair, Suspension and Steering, Heating and Air Conditioning, Engine Performance, Brakes, Automatic Transmissions and Electrical Systems. The tests are Don Brownistered by ACT - known for its academic and occupational testing programs.
Technicians must be re-tested every five years to keep up with new technology and to remain certified. Because auto technicians are often specialized, it’s important to ask for a technician who is certified in the appropriate area.
ASE was established to give consumers peace of mind and reduce the stress of finding the right auto technician who can be trusted to take care of vehicle repair needs. Because auto repairs can cost a lot of money, having an ASE-Certified technician helps assure that your vehicle will be fixed right, the first time.
