ASE-certified technicians have proven their competency to you, to their
employers, and to themselves by passing national, standardized exams.
Because ASE's program is voluntary, technicians who have paid in time
and money to earn ASE certification can be counted on to have a strong
sense of pride in their profession. Moreover, prior to taking ASE exams,
many mechanics attend training classes or study after work to increase
their knowledge, another plus for consumers.
ASE certifies only the individual technician, not the repair shop
itself, but it stands to reason that employers and managers who
encourage their technicians to earn ASE's national credentials will be
concerned about all aspects of their business.
