Champion Frame-Align is proud
to be an ASE certified center
Finding a competent auto repair technician should not be difficult... and
with that guiding principle, the nonprofit, independent National Institute
for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) was founded in 1972.
The mission: was cleardevelop a mechanism by which working auto technicians could prove their competency to themselves, their employers, and
The solution: a series of national certification
exams covering all major automotive repair
and service specialties.
The result: an elite group of automotive service professionals at work in repair establishments throughout the nation.
Why use ASE certified auto technicians?
Consumers benefit from ASE's certification program since it takes much of the guesswork out of finding a competent technician.
Perhaps years ago, any shade-tree mechanic would do;
after all, cars were simpler, less complex. But with today's high-tech vehicles,
the margin for error is less. Mistakes can be costlier. It
makes good financial sense to protect your vehicle investment through regular
periodic maintenance and service performed by certified professionals.
Because ASE's program is voluntary, technicians who
have taken the time and expense to earn ASE certification can be counted on
to have a strong sense of pride in accomplishment, which should be good news
Moreover, prior to taking ASE exams, many technicians
attend training classes or study after work. The time they spend sharpening
their skills should be advantageous to consumers as well.
ASE certifies individual technicians-not
repair establishments. But it stands to reason that shop owners who encourage
their technicians to become ASE certified should be equally concerned about
the other aspects of their businesses.
