LEESBURG, Va. — The National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) has extended all ASE certifications expiring on June 30 to Dec. 31 in recognition of the turmoil caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
"During these challenging times, we don't want service professionals to worry about expiring ASE certifications. To help ease their minds, ASE has automatically extended all expiring certifications until year-end," ASE President and CEO Tim Zilke said.
"Our transportation infrastructure needs skilled individuals with professional credentials to keep the supply chain and motoring public going. They have the full support of ASE and we thank them for their commitment to professionalism and dedicated service, today and every day."
Upon successful completion of an ASE test, ASE certification credentials are valid for five years and have an expiration date of either June 30 or Dec. 31, depending on when the certification was earned.
Expiration reminders are sent before credentials expire.
