Order Reprints

Feb. 3, 2015—The National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) announced on Monday that it has changed its testing schedule to allow year-round access for automotive professionals.

ASE testing is now available 12 months out of the year. Whether a candidate registers on the first day of a registration window or the last, they will always have 90 days to schedule an appointment and take a certification test at any of the 450-plus Prometric test centers across the country. 

“This new testing schedule is designed to eliminate the last-minute crush and improve access to convenient dates and times at the testing centers,” Tim Zilke, ASE president & CEO, said in a release. “While ASE certification will still have quarterly registration cycles in winter, spring, summer and fall, the testing will be continuous. Certifications will expire in June and December, the same as before.”

The new testing cycle increases the availability of appointment times by 50 percent. You can find all the information on the ASE certification program, including registration deadlines, links to ASE study guides, recorded webinars to help you prepare and even a free “test drive” link to experience the computer based testing format on the ASE website at
