What Does ASE-Certified Mean?

Your car is a tremendous investment, and it needs to be inspected and maintained by top-tier, experienced auto repair specialists. You can expect that high-quality service from our ASE-Certified mechanics at Red Rock Repair. 

You may be thinking, "what does that acronym stand for" and "why does it matter". ASE stands for Automotive Service Excellence, and it has been a nationally recognized certification in the auto repair industry since the 1970s. Prior to then, vehicle owners weren't lucky enough to distinguish between untrained mechanics and professionally trained technicians. The non-profit National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) stepped in and established the certification. 


The certification serves to improve repair and craftsmanship quality with a series of tests. For someone to pass, they must have a minimum of two years of hands-on work before they need to take tests. The exam covers the following:

  • Suspension and brakes
  • Electrical systems
  • Heating and air-conditioning
  • Engine repair
  • Automatic transmissions
  • Engine performance
  • Axles
  • Manual drivetrains

The ASE- certification is not permanent, and auto mechanics have to every five years as advancements in the industry are constantly evolving. As a car owner, you'll want the person to handle your car to be ASE-certified. 


Employers usually display the credentials of their team, as it is a great accomplishment. At Red Rock Repair, we pride ourselves on being a knowledgable, trustworthy, and skillful auto repair business. Our highly qualified ASE-Certified mechanics are the best and always have every inch of your vehicle covered. If you're in need of maintenance or repair services, please do not hesitate to contact us. Give us a call at (702) 718-4808 if you have any questions or concerns today.
