The National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) said it will begin to resume testing on May 18 in certain areas of the country with test-center availability and lifted stay-at-home orders.
“As always, our overriding priority remains the health and safety of automotive service professionals and their families,” said Tim Zilke, ASE president and CEO. “We are re-instituting ASE testing in select areas of the country to help those who want to earn or renew their credentials. We are working diligently with our test-center partner Prometric to ensure that testing is conducted in a safe manner, following governmental health guidelines and adhering to proper social distancing recommendations.”
ASE tests scheduled prior to May 18 have been cancelled and can be rescheduled to a date after May 18. Those who have registered for a test but have not yet scheduled an appointment now have until Sept. 30 to take the tests.
To maintain proper social distancing, test-center seating will be reduced, ASE noted.
ASE recommends that automotive professionals coordinate testing with their employers and review the safety measures that the Prometric test centers have put in place. For any questions or concerns, email ASE at [email protected] or call 800-390-6789.
“Safety is of paramount importance to us,” Zilke said. “Please continue to follow the guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and know that you have the full support of ASE as you keep the motoring public going.”
