The National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) was formed in 1972. ASE’s mission is to improve the quality of vehicle repair through the testing and certification of repair and service programs. After providing proof of relevant work experience, prospective candidates register for one or more of ASE’s 40 plus exams. Testing is grouped into specialties to include collision repair and collision damage estimating. These tests are conducted twice a year, and are not easy. One of every three candidates tested fail. Upon certification, ASE technicians must have their credentials retested every 5 years to remain certified.
