‎The National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) certifies mechanics and shops in the automotive repair and service industry.  ASE was created in 1972 as an independent, non-profit organization. The overall purpose for ASE certification is to help consumers distinguish between potentially incompetent and competent automotive technicians. The goal of the ASE is to improve the quality of vehicle repair and service through the testing and certification of repair and service professionals.

ASE exams are administered Prometric Test Centers. Certification requires passing an exam and having required experience.  The required experience can be substituted by one year of on-the-job training and a two-year training degree. A recertification track is also offered for those who have had previous certification. Many employers will require that their employees be ASE certified.
