Hi guys, Ive been out of tech school for about 6 months. Im already starting to forget some of what I have learned because I am working at autozone.. and not in a shop where I should be everyday. So basically I would like to get started in getting my ASE certs. When I was in school, they gave us a discount to take the tests, but unfortuneatly I was scraping by at the time, so I couldnt afford it.
So how much do the ASE test costs out of pocket? And how do I go about getting started for testing? I just took a few ASE practice tests and average 90% for transmissions, So im pretty confident I would pass.
Next question is.. Since I would still need shop time to actually get the ASE certs, would it look good on a resume that Ive passed the tests, or does it not really matter? Thanks!
dont remember what they cost, but I took mine while in school and I thought it was around 40 a test, that was discounted tho.
as for does it help, of course anything helps on a resume. it just depends on what you do with it. I have several ASE tests that I have passed, but you dont get a cert because I dont meet the shop time experience. plus, I work on construction equipment now so it doesnt do me any good to keep up for ASE
They will only pay if youve been with the company for more than a year.. and they only will pay for the parts knowledge certification.. I just want the transmission knowledge ase right now thats my specialty.
