CGTC Students Become ASE Certified

Four Automotive Technology Program students at Central Georgia Technical College’s Milledgeville Campus recently volunteered to take the Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) exam. The students, Blake Green, Robert Huguley, Payton Fuller and George Pennington, passed the exam.

The ASE exam is normally taken by technicians who have been employed in the field for several years. To get a certification, a technician must pass the exam and have two years of professional experience. The education and training these students received at CGTC will substitute for one year of experience.

Passing the ASE exam along with their diplomas from CGTC will provide the students with a competitive edge when searching for employment.

The independent, non-profit National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence provides voluntary testing and certification of technicians and other automotive service professionals. ASE's tests are industry-driven and are grouped into specialties that cover virtually every on-highway vehicle service segment and stresses knowledge of job-related skills.
