I’ve done several tech articles over the past few months but I thought I’d start something new. Some of you might want to know a little more about me.
I’ve been an ASE certified technician since 2003, before I graduated from the Tennessee Technology Center at Harriman (now the Tennessee College of Applied Technology).
ASE stands for Automotive Service Excellence and you can find out more about it here.
I was a Master Tech (8 certifications) when I graduated in 2004 and I’ve kept the certifications current ever since. While I was working at Advance Auto Parts they paid for my P2 Parts Specialist certification. A few days ago I just took two more tests, X1 Exhaust Systems and G1 General Light Repair and Maintenance, bringing my total up to 11 certifications. I plan on taking some heavy duty tests and the L1 Advanced Engine Performance this spring with a goal of having at least 20 ASEs in the next two years. It’s a lot of work, but ASE certifications are a great way to advance your career in the automotive and heavy duty field.
I think I’d like to do a few more posts like this every now and then to give you a little better idea of exactly who I am. I’m working at fleshing out the rest of the pages of my blog soon, and I’m starting a new weekly series tomorrow called, Tech Tip Tuesdays.
Check back tomorrow for an interesting little tidbit I’ve learned over the years. Later!
Update: As of June 2015, I have 22 current ASE Certifications
