Tom Freiberg is ASE Certified in the latest car care and repair techniques and tools.
St Anthony Service employs qualified ASE-certified technicians. ASE certification takes the guesswork out of finding a good technician. The independent, non-profit National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) tests and certifies the competence of individual automotive repair technicians so you can be assured of their skills and knowledge. Here's why many owners employ ASE-Certified repair professionals... and why you should ask for them when you need repairs:
Proven Experience. Skills and Knowledge technicians must pass to become certified, at least one of ASE's 40-plus difficult national exams and provide proof of two years of relevant work experience. Prior to taking ASE exams, many technicians attend training classes or put in hours of study to prepare.
Changing Technology. Today's complex vehicles demand current technical knowledge. ASE requires technicians to re-test every five years to keep up with technology and to remain certified. All ASE credentials have expiration dates.
Commitment to Quality
Technicians who have invested the time and expense to earn ASE certification take pride in their work, and it shows in the service they provide. Shop owners and managers who encourage their employees to become certified maintain the same high standards in other aspects of their business.
Look for the blue-and-white ASE sign at our station. ASE-Certified technicians wear the ASE shoulder insignia, and their credentials are posted in the customer service area.
