You’ve probably heard about “ASE certified mechanics” and seen the blue logo fairly often, but maybe haven’t stopped to wonder exactly what that means. The non-profit National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence was founded in 1972 to assure quality auto shop services by independently testing and certifying professionals. ASE certification means you’re dealing with an automotive professional for vehicle repair and service.
You can count on the nearly 300,000 ASE certified mechanics in the US to do the job right. Mechanics with SCE Auto have undergone some pretty stringent requirements to demonstrate their technical expertise and detailed understanding of automotive service. An ASE certified technician has met all of the following.
- They have 2 years of experience in on-the-job training in automotive repair and service, or 1 year of experience plus a 2-year degree in auto repair. So they’re not fresh out of a tech school.
- They have passed several challenging ASE Certification tests. There are some 40+ different tests, each with many dozens of questions covering various areas such as automatic transmissions, brakes, electrical, emissions, engine performance, engine repair, heating & AC, radiators & cooling systems, and suspension & steering.
- Certified technicians have to be re-tested every 5 years to assure that they’re up to date on the ever-changing latest technologies, equipment, and techniques.
