Industry Certification

The Automotive Service pathway includes classroom and hands-on experiences that prepare students for employment or continuing education in the auto service industry.

Any student who successfully completes this program will be eligible to apply to obtain the ASE exams. ASE requires 2 years of employment before certificates are issued. Students receive 1 year of credit for completion of the secondary program. Students who take certifications before the 2-year requirement is met will be granted certifications after they complete 1 year of automotive employment. This is a national certification program recognized throughout the automotive service industry.
