LEESBURG, Va. — The National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) has reopened its test centers and the registration for summer testing is available through Sept. 30.
Those who register for an ASE test will have 90 days to schedule an appointment to take their selected ASE tests, whether registering on the first day of the registration window or the last. ASE tests are conducted days, nights and weekends at nearly 300 secured, proctored test centers, the organization said.
A registration fee is paid once during the registration window, no matter how many tests an individual takes.
For those renewing A1-A9 certification, the ASE renewal app allows techs to validate their technical knowledge with ASE's Renewal app and maintain their certification status. It is available on a desktop, tablet or mobile device.
More than 54 ASE certification tests are offered for automotive, collision, medium/heavy duty, school bus, transit bus and truck equipment repair.
To help ensure the protection of its employees and test takers, and to remain in compliance with governmental mandates and recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization, Prometric test centers have enacted safety practices throughout the testing process and are following local government guidelines, the ASE said.
It is recommended that automotive professionals coordinate testing with their employers and review the safety measures that Prometric has put in place.
