ASE Student Certification can be thought of as the first step in building a career as a service professional in the automotive industry.


Whether marking the completion of career-entry studies in automotive technology, collision repair and refinishing, these tests can provide the student with their first industry-recognized certification through the [icons icon_name=”icon-external-link” icon_size=”14px”]National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence.

Automotive students at [icons icon_name=”icon-external-link” icon_size=”14px”]Nimitz High School did an outstanding job at putting their skills to the test. Twenty-four of 28 students in instructor Albert Nicholas’ auto tech class earned at least one certification. One student, Héctor Ángel, earned a total of six certifications. And two Nimitz ladies made history. Kimberly Durán and Mónica Villarreal are the first female students to earn two ASE certifications each. In all, the Nimitz students earned a total of 72 certifications in many areas including brakes, steering and suspension, engine repair, HVAC and electrical.
