ASE moves to paperless certification tests

ASE moves to paperless certification tests

The digital switch came at the end of January, though initial certifications will still need to be achieved in person.

The National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) moved its certification tests for the automobile advanced engine performance specialist (L1) and medium/heavy truck electronic diesel engine diagnosis specialist (L2) to a paperless format. ASE L-series tests are offered in-person at more than 450 proctored Prometric test centers, while online recertification may be done remotely through ProProctor.

In addition to the L1 and L2 tests, the light duty hybrid/electric vehicle specialist (L3) with certification test reference and Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) specialist (L4) with composite vehicle are offered in a paperless format. With the new changes, the certification test reference and composite vehicle documents for all ASE advanced level tests will be available during testing in electronic PDF only.

“We know that time is valuable for service professionals, so by transitioning to paperless testing, we have made the L1 and L2 testing options more convenient for them,” said Dave Johnson, president and chief executive officer for ASE.
