LEESBURG, Va. — The National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) is encouraging technicians to use the new ASE renewal app to extend their A1-A9 certifications remotely.
By renewing on the app, technicians can keep their ASE certifications current without going in a test center. They also will receive an immediate one-year extension added to A-series certification when they sign up at ASErenewalApp.com.
"We are expecting a very high number of service technicians to register for ASE certification tests from now until the end of the year and that could make scheduling tests more difficult for some. The good news is that service professionals renewing their A1-A9 certifications have another option," Tim Zilke, ASE president and CEO, said.
"By using the ASE renewal app, these professionals will have a remote option for managing their certifications and testing their technical knowledge through an app on their phone, tablet or computer — all without scheduling a test or visiting a test center."
The ASE renewal app program only is available to technicians who already are certified in the automobile series of tests (tests A1-A9).
