TECHNICIAN CERTIFICATION

Automotive Service Excellence

Until the early 1970s, consumers had no way to distinguish between incompetent and competent mechanics. In response to this need, the independent, non-profit National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) was established in 1972.

ASE's mission is to improve the quality of vehicle repair and service through the testing and certification of repair and service professionals.

At present there are over 420,000 professionals with current certifications. They work in every segment of the automotive service industry: car and truck dealerships, independent garages, fleets, service stations, franchises, and more.

Here's how ASE certification works: Prospective candidates register for and take one or more of ASE's 40-plus exams. The tests are grouped into specialties for automobile, medium/heavy truck, truck equipment, school bus, and collision repair technicians as well as engine machinists, alternate fuels technicians, parts specialists, collision damage estimators and auto service consultants.

Upon passing at least one exam and after providing proof of two years of relevant work experience, the test taker becomes ASE certified. Certification, however, is not for life. To remain certified, those with ASE credentials must be retested every five years.

The tests, which are conducted twice a year at over 700 locations around the country, are administered by ACT, known for its academic and occupational testing programs. The exams stress knowledge of job-related skills. They are no cinch to pass; approximately one out of three test takers fails.

Consumers benefit from ASE certification. It is a valuable yardstick by which to measure the knowledge and skills of individual technicians as well as the commitment to quality of the repair facility employing ASE-certified professionals.

ASE-certified professionals usually wear blue and white ASE insignia and carry credentials listing their exact area(s) of expertise (brakes, engine repair, etc.), while employers often display their technicians' credentials in the customer waiting area.

Consumers should look for facilities that display the ASE Blue Seal of Excellence© logo.

    I've been using Joe and all the guys at X-Pert Auto for at least 5 years (maybe more!). I Have a 20 yr old SUV that they keep running in tip top shape and 2 diesel trucks. Can't be happier. Always knowledgeable. Have recommended to many of my friends and they use them now too!

    I have been so pleased with the service and support that I receive at X-PERT Auto each time I go. They are professional and very thorough. Work completed on the car is explained clearly and the office staff is welcoming and efficient.

    I brought my car into XPert Automotive for servicing. Wanted to use an independent business close to home. Found the team to be very knowledgeable and pleasant. My battery was low and instead of selling me a new battery, Joe Pate, the owner, called to say he could charge the battery for a few hours and retest it. Turns out that did the trick. Saved me money. I was impressed with his honesty and integrity. Will definitely be going back for my next service!

    Warning light came on. Filled out appointment form at 9pm. 8:10am next morning received a call. Brought car in that day. They said they would get to it asap based on workload. Received a call next day stating what the problem was, repair options and pricing. Gave the go ahead. Another call about parts availabilities and when this was resolved. Next call was that vehicle was ready. Communication was the key to my high rating for them.

    Have gone to X-pert Automotive for 6 years. All technicians are highly trained on all makes of cars, owner is hands-on and honest. Shelley and Frankie are outstanding employees, friendly and efficient. All service is very thorough, but pricing is highly reasonable. Cannot say enough good things about their service and expertise. First time I have ever completely trusted this type of service.
