TECHNICIAN CERTIFICATION, Reseda, CA

Automotive Service Excellence

Until the early 1970s, consumers had no way to distinguish between incompetent and competent mechanics. In response to this need, the independent, non-profit National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) was established in 1972.

ASE's mission is to improve the quality of vehicle repair and service through the testing and certification of repair and service professionals.

At present there are over 420,000 professionals with current certifications. They work in every segment of the automotive service industry: car and truck dealerships, independent garages, fleets, service stations, franchises, and more.

Here's how ASE certification works: Prospective candidates register for and take one or more of ASE's 40-plus exams. The tests are grouped into specialties for automobile, medium/heavy truck, truck equipment, school bus, and collision repair technicians as well as engine machinists, alternate fuels technicians, parts specialists, collision damage estimators and auto service consultants.

Upon passing at least one exam and after providing proof of two years of relevant work experience, the test taker becomes ASE certified. Certification, however, is not for life. To remain certified, those with ASE credentials must be retested every five years.

The tests, which are conducted twice a year at over 700 locations around the country, are administered by ACT, known for its academic and occupational testing programs. The exams stress knowledge of job-related skills. They are no cinch to pass; approximately one out of three test takers fails.

Consumers benefit from ASE certification. It is a valuable yardstick by which to measure the knowledge and skills of individual technicians as well as the commitment to quality of the repair facility employing ASE-certified professionals.

ASE-certified professionals usually wear blue and white ASE insignia and carry credentials listing their exact area(s) of expertise (brakes, engine repair, etc.), while employers often display their technicians' credentials in the customer waiting area.

Consumers should look for facilities that display the ASE Blue Seal of Excellence© logo.

Came in to get oil changes for both mine and my wife?s car and had an electrical problem looked at on my wife?s car! They got us in early, got my car out fast and took care of all of the problems on my wife?s car by the next day! All in all they were great at AG auto ! Plus they recommended a great smog check guy !

The shop was very accommodating and got me in for the afternoon wheel alignment as a walk-in customer. Prices were reasonable and no nickle and diming me on service. What they quoted on the verbal estimate was honored and their follow-up after care was very impressive. The owner actually reads the reviews and was very responsive to my minor concern regarding the alignment printout. He immediately replied with apologizing for not having that attached to my receipt and quickly sent me my copy they had on record. He also awarded me a FREE oil change for my concern. I will definitely return for care at this shop.

A.G. Automotive is by far the best auto diagnosis and mechanic in the San Fernando Valley. Their lead Master mechanic Chuck is extremely experienced and is able to diagnose the hardest of Engine and Electrical issues on just about every make and model. I took in my Porsche Panamera S to A.G. for their Oil and Lube service recently and was in and out in a flash. The car is purring now but it was not always the case. A few years back the engine seized and I was fortunate enough to be referred to A.G. for a tow in diagnosis. Chuck was so excellent in figuring out what the issue was that Porsche North America had little argument against a manufacturer defect and ended up covering a $16,000 repair. Prices are very fair and low for the level of expertise that you are getting. Highly recommended, especially when you don't know what is wrong with your car and need an honest mechanic to fix it for you.
