ASE Renewal App Helps Techs Extend Certifications

Posted on January 13, 2020

More than 100 ASE-certified technicians have extended their certification expiration dates by one year thanks to an app that tests technical knowledge through their phones, tablets or computers.

The National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) says its ASE Renewal App program is available only to technicians who are already certified in the automobile series of tests (tests A1-A9).

"The ASE Renewal App program is about giving technicians options for how they manage their professional certifications," said Tim Zilke, ASE president and CEO.

"We are grateful to the 100 early adopters of the program, who provided crucial feedback that will improve the ASE Renewal App. They are truly an elite group of professionals who are focused on excellence in their careers."

Participants in the ASE Renewal App program commit only a few minutes per certification area per month to answering questions, so it takes an average of eight months to extend certifications by a year.

ASE says that learning is a strong emphasis of the program. Question content focuses on the leading-edge technology on modern vehicles or issues that technicians typically have difficulty diagnosing.

The National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) was founded in 1972 as a non-profit, independent organization dedicated to improving the quality of automotive service and repair through voluntary testing and certification of automotive professionals. Approximately a quarter of a million ASE certified automobile, truck, and collision repair technicians, and parts specialists work in dealerships, independent shops, service stations, auto parts stores, fleets, schools, and colleges across the nation.
