The automotive industry has grown by leaps and bounds! The days of working on your own automobile are nearly impossible without high tech equipment and specialized training. There are a lot of back-yard mechanics around who would like to have your car-repair dollars.
In order to protect consumers, the independent, non-profit, National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) was established (1972). Their mission was clear: to develop a system where automobile technicians could prove competency - not only to consumers, but also to their employers and to themselves.
A series of national certification exams covering all the major automotive repair and service specialties produces a specialized group of automotive service professionals in repair establishments throughout the nation.
