ASE Student Certification is the first step in building a career as a service professional in the automotive industry. 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 certification through the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence.


NOTE: Due to significant planned enhancements to the ASE Student Certification system, the start of the Fall test window for the 2016-17 academic year will be delayed until September 15, 2016.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause; however, we expect these changes will greatly enhance the user experience and improve service, especially during peak traffic periods.

Aside from the delayed start this school year, we will be expanding the test windows to allow for almost year-round testing. Future Fall test windows will run from August 1 through January 31, while the Spring test window will run March 1, through June 30.

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.
