ASI ASE/CASE Certification

The ASE/CASE program offers a certification of providers of training for working technicians.

The National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation (NATEF) will evaluate the training providers' process of developing and delivering training and then recommend certification as an ASE Certified Training Provider of Continuing Automotive Service Education (CASE).

Training providers order ASE/CASE materials (Standards, Application, Polices/Procedures) from NATEF. After completing their self-evaluation, the provider submits copies of their completed ASE/CASE application for review by NATEF. If deemed complete by NATEF, a one-day onsite evaluation is scheduled and undertaken with an Evaluation Team Leader (ETL) and team members. After the onsite evaluation, the ETL makes a report and recommendation to NATEF for certification of the training provider. NATEF reviews the report and circulates it to the members of the In-Service Training Committee. With committee agreement, NATEF notifies the provider that they have received ASE certification as a training provider of Continuing Automotive Service Education. If the provider is not eligible for certification, NATEF will identify the areas needing improvement.

At this time there will be a three year certification cycle with a update report required after years one and two. Recertification will use the same process as the initial certification.

An ASE/CASE Training Provider's Code of Ethics has also been developed. Certified training providers must sign off on the Code and agree to abide by its principles.
