ASE is an independent, non-profit organization, and since 1972 ASE has worked to improve the quality of vehicle repair and service by testing and certifying repair and service professionals.
The mechanics at A&B Transmission and Automotive Service are certified by ASE - the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence.
Auto technicians and other professionals who want to become ASE certified can take one or more of ASE’s 40-plus exams. The exams are grouped into specialties such as automobile, medium/heavy truck, truck equipment, school bus, collision repair, and more.
The exams stress knowledge of job-related skills. The tests are no cinch to pass; in fact, usually only two out of every three test-takers pass on their first attempt. After passing at least one exam and providing proof of two years of relevant work experience, the test-taker becomes ASE certified. To remain certified, ASE-certified professionals must be retested every five years.
