What is ASE and Why is it Important to You?
Posted October 23, 2013
Finding a talented, trustworthy auto mechanic in Aurora isn’t as hard as you think and since October is National Car Care Month, our team at Chase Automotive is teaching you why you should only let an ASE-Certified mechanic work on your vehicle.
To get your car a thorough repair the first time, you need to take it to a trustworthy facility, like Chase Automotive, that employs top-notch technicians who have the drive and experience to get the job done quickly and professionally.
That’s why you should always look for the ASE Blue Seal of Excellence on a shop’s window.
The ASE, or Automotive Service Excellence Program, was established in 1972 in an effort to improve the auto industry with better technicians and more ethical practices. This not only benefited the auto facilities but their customers as well!
When technicians are ASE-Certified, they have passed the rigorous testing standards set forth by the program. These mechanics must also have a minimum 2 years of experience working at an auto shop. Getting the certification is no cakewalk—in fact, these tests are constantly changing in order to stay current with the technology in cars today!
When and if a technician passes the test, they’re not certified for life. The test must be retaken every 5 years so technicians can retain their ASE credentials.
This benefits the shop AND the customer. Customers have peace of mind knowing some of the best in the business are working on their vehicle, and the shop benefits from employing some of the most knowledgeable technicians in the business.
