One way to determine if a repair shop is qualified to maintain and repair your vehicle is the ASE Blue Seal of Excellence. It should be proudly displayed, as this achievement is not easy to accomplish.

What is the ASE Blue Seal of Excellence?
The National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (or ASE) is an independent, non-profit organization that tests and certifies auto repair & service professionals. Since 1972 ASE has worked to improve the quality of vehicle repair and service by testing and certifying automotive professionals and providing certification for many facets of automotive service.

Certification in a given category requires passing an exam and two years relevant work experience. For example, an ASE Master Technician shall have passed exams in each of eight categories (Engine Repair, Automatic Transmission, Manual Transmission and Drive Trains, Suspension & Steering, Brakes, Electrical Systems, Heating & Air Conditioning, and Engine Performance) and have two years experience servicing each of those systems.

Sierra Car Care and MST Tire Center’s ASE Certification promotes our dedication to excellence in automotive repair and service. ASE certifies our automotive technician and service professionals, not the auto shop(s).

Why Does ASE Exist?
To protect the automotive service consumer, shop owner, and the automotive technician. ASE will test and certify automotive professionals so that shop owners and service customers can better gauge a technicians level of expertise before contracting the technician’s services. ASE certifies the automotive technician professional so they can offer tangible proof of their technical knowledge. ASE Certification testing means peace of mind for auto service managers, customers.

How Does ASE Certification Work?
In addition to passing an ASE Certification test, automotive technicians must have two years of on the job training or one year of on the job training and a two-year degree in automotive repair to qualify for certification.

The exams are not easy. Only two out of every three test-takers pass on their first attempt. To remain ASE certified, professionals must be retested every five years to keep up with advancements in automotive technology.
