Automotive Service Excellence

Meet The ASE Certified Team


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.


what our customers say

I have had my vehicle repaired at Check Engine on several occasions. They have always been courteous and listen to what my complaints about the problem I was experiencing with my vehicle. A very professional team.

Check Engine is a 5 star establishment in my books. I recommend if you have car issues don't waste your time going anywhere else. My parents came from Texas 4th of July weekend and had the transmission go out in their vehicle. Joey and the guys got them going with a new transmission with a guarantee in a timely manner and the estimate was right on the dot. Great job!

I can't say enough regarding the integrity and high level of customer service at Check Engine. I was looking at a used vehicle that showed several visits to their shop on the Carfax report. I sent off an email, and received a call back from Joey within 10 minutes. He ran through the vehicle's service history and eased my mind regarding my desire to purchase the vehicle for my 17 year old daughter. If I lived in Woodward, I would not hesitate to take my vehicle to them. They offer a level of service you just don't find these days. Great Job!
