ASE Master Technicians

ASE Certified Master Technician

From the ASE website: “ASE stands for National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence. ASE is a national testing organization which sets standards for automotive technicians. To become certified by ASE, a technician first must have repair experience on a particular system, then take and pass the ASE test for that system. All ASE certifications are valid for 4 years, and then the Technician must re-take and pass the updated test to be re-certified on that particular system.”


“When you see the ASE logo at a repair facility, be aware, that not all the mechanics at the shop need to be certified. Unless you ask, you don’t know if the mechanic working on your car is ASE certified, or which type of ASE certification he has achieved.”


“If a Technician is certified in all of the 8 areas, he is then known as an ASE Master Certified Technician. A Master Certification is very difficult to accomplish. Most repair shops do not employ a Master Technicians. If they do, the Master Technician is usually the highest paid Technician and works on the most complicated repairs.”
