Saying you’re one of the best at something means very little if you can’t prove it, and this is the main reason certifications are important to us. Seeing that a shop is ASE Certified or AAA approved says a lot more about the quality of our services than we ever could. These certifications bring peace of mind to our customers and allow us the opportunity to grow and improve the services we offer. There are numerous certification organizations within the automotive repair industry, and the most well-known and widely respected is the National Institute of Automotive Service Excellence (ASE).
ASE Certifications are obtained by each mechanic and cover over 50 different areas of the automotive repair industry. It is the most extensive automotive training program in the United States and is considered the industry standard by most automakers and experts. To get a better idea of the difficulty of obtaining and renewing ASE Certification, we’ve provided the requirements as found on ASE’s official webpage.
“In addition to passing an ASE Certification test, automotive technicians must have two years of on the job training or one year of on the job training and a two-year degree in automotive repair to qualify for certification. The tests are challenging. Only two out of every three test-takers pass on their first attempt. To remain ASE certified, professionals must retest every five years to keep up with ever-advancing automotive technology.”
On top of our mechanics being ASE certified, Metro Transmission and Automotive is also certified by Automatic Transmission Rebuilders Association (ATRA), we’re an AAA Approved Auto Repair Center, and maintain an A+ rating with the BBB. Transmission repair is more than just a job to us. It’s our passion, and we’re completely dedicated to being one of the best in the business.
