ASE Student Certification can be thought of as the first step in building a career as a service professional in the automotive industry. Whether marking the completion of career-entry studies in automotive technology, collision repair and refinishing, or medium/heavy-duty trucks, these tests can provide the student with their first industry-recognized certification through the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence.


  • Fall Test Window Open: August 15 - January 31
  • Spring Test Window Open: March 15 - June 15

A single $30 fee per student, per academic year, allows the student to take any or all tests in a test series twice each year – once in the Fall and once in the Spring. Fall tests can be designated as a pretest for pre- and post-test score reporting.
