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.

  • -Alton T.

    My name is Al Thead and I have been taking my cars to Quality Lube n Tune for going on four years now. In that time I have had four vehicles and they serviced them all providing incredible work. I go here because they are trustworthy and honest people and I like to do business with them. Their $21 oil change is nearly impossible to beat even if doing it myself. Enjoy the service and the people!


  • -Kelly J.

    Great mechanic/s. Great manager... knows his business! I will NEVER take my car anywhere else!!


  • -Kim C.

    The staff is friendly and upfront. Being a girl- more often than not car places try to take advantage, but these guys were straight forward and didn't try to sell me every service under the sun. Waited a bit because they were busy but it was worth it!


  • -Lindesy S.

    We got great service on a major repair on our truck. When the part that the vender sent was faulty they took no time to remove it, get us a warrantied part, and have us back on the road in a timely. Would recommend to anyone!


  • -Brandon M.

    These guys could have charged me for something but came back in and said we didn't need to. It's nice to trust the people working on your car.
