    This program is targeted at individuals pursuing certification and employment as an Automotive Technician. This program prepares students for a successful career as an Automotive Technician by outlining the automotive industry, the role of the Automotive Technician, and steps for diagnosing and servicing all automobile systems.

    Certification

    Upon successful completion of the Automotive Technology course series, students will be prepared to sit for the Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) national certification exam to become a Certified Automotive Technician.
    Automobile & Light Truck Certification Tests (A1 - A9)
    Objective:
    To identify and recognize those Automobile and Light Truck (up to Class 3) Technicians who can demonstrate knowledge of the skills necessary to diagnose, service, and repair cars, SUVs, and light duty trucks.
    Tests Offered:
    A1 – Engine Repair (50 scored questions)
    A2 – Automatic Transmission/Transaxle (50)
    A3 – Manual Drive Train & Axles (40)
    A4 – Suspension & Steering (40)
    A5 – Brakes (45)
    A6 – Electrical/Electronic Systems (50)
    A7 – Heating & Air Conditioning (50)
    A8 – Engine Performance (50)
    Master Status Requirements:
    Those are certified in tests A1 – A8 are recognized as ASE-Certified Master Automobile Technicians. NOTE: A9 is NOT a requirement for Master Automobile Technician Status.
    Recertification:
    Technicians must retest every five years to retain their certification. The Automobile & Light Truck recertification tests (A1R – A8R) are about half as long as the initial certification tests.
    Each state may have additional licensing requirements, be sure to research your states requirements for employment by visiting your states occupation board.
