Knowing whether or not a technician is competent to fix your vehicle is very important. ASE certification sets industry standard and takes the guess work out of getting your vehicle repaired properly. The National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) is a nationally recognized nonprofit program that promotes excellence in automotive repair and service. There are currently over 400,000 certified professionals.
ASE technician testing consists of eight tests:
Those who pass the exams in all eight areas, plus an experience requirement,earn Master Technician status. Beyond passing all eight tests, technicians may achieve an advanced degree in diagnostics called an L1 degree. ASE certified professionals must retest every five years to keep up with ever advancing automotive technology.
