You might have heard the term "ASE-Certified Auto Technician" before but not completely understood what that is? Auto Technicians take pride in the ASE-Certifications, and becoming certified can take a long time. Think of ASE-Certified Auto Technicians like the "doctors of the car world," performing complicated anatomical work and formulating diagnosis and treatment plans.

Typically, a mechanic's ASE-Certification requires 1 to 2 years of on-the-job work experience and a 2-year degree in auto repair! The ASE-Certification contains many steps along the way, including difficult tests for each level of certification. Long story short, your ASE-Certified Auto Technicians are highly skilled and educated professionals, who take their work very seriously. 

In a typical day-in-the-life of an ASE-Certified Auto Technician, you might find them:

Performing Complicated Diagnostic Work


Building Treatment Plans for Your Vehicle


Organizing Team Logistics


Formulating Plans of Action


Checking Inventory & Ordering Parts


Writing Estimates for Vehicle Work


Physically Working on Vehicles


Cleaning and Maintaining Expensive Equipment

This is just a short list of the much longer compendium of tasks that an ASE-Certified Auto Technician might be performing! Like a doctor, their work requires a mastery of their subject and a passion for helping people. Find yourself a great Auto Service Center and meet some of the ASE-Certified Technicians in your area!
