Motorists 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 certifies the technical competenceacelogo1.png of individual technicians, not repair facilities. Before taking ASE certification tests, many technicians attend training classes or study on their own in order to brush up on their knowledge.
By passing difficult, national tests, ASE certified technicians prove their technical competence to themselves, to their employers, and to their customers.What's more, because the ASE program is primarily voluntary, ASE certification becomes a self-selecting credential that weeds out the incompetent A.
THE BENEFITS OF ASE-CERTIFIED TECHNICIANS
Today's vehicles are more advanced than ever before. The technology that goes into each vehicle is constantly changing, which means the methods and tools needed to repair them are constantly changing, too. Automobile technicians must have current skills and knowledge to keep pace with the ever-changing vehicles. That's why we employ qualified ASE certified technicians.
The National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) is an independent, non-profit organization that tests and certifies individual automotive repair technicians based on skills, knowledge and experience.
