What Is ASE?
Short for the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence, ASE has been around since 1972. This non-profit organization has worked hard to ensure that drivers across the country are benefitting from the highest quality vehicle repair. This is done by testing and certifying automotive technicians.
There over 300,000 automotive technicians and professionals holding current ASE certifications, and they work in all different parts of the automotive industry. It’s important to note that ASE certifies the technicians, not repair shops or service centers. So, your certification can go a long way, even if you have to move or are changing employers.
The end goal is to protect the consumer, the shop, and you. Certification gives consumers a better idea of a technician’s expertise before they decide to bring their car to a service center, which leads to peace of mind for everyone.
