ASE Launches Online
Practice Tests
In response to requests from the industry, ASE
has launched its Official ASE Practice Tests. This
new ASE product offers technicians and other
automotive professionals the opportunity to take
no-stakes online practice tests, with questions of the same
content and format as those used on the ASE certification exams.
The Practice Tests are half the length of the regular ASE tests
and provide feedback in the form of a performance report and
explanations for correct and incorrect answers.
The Official ASE Practice Tests will help prepare candidates
for the regular ASE certification tests through an independent,
precertification assessment of their competency, giving them
an opportunity to improve their skills in areas of weakness prior
to taking the ASE certification test.
“The secondary goals of the Official ASE Practice Tests are
to ease candidate anxiety for those with a fear of failing the ASE
certification tests and to establish a comfort level with an electronic
format similar to our Computer-Based Testing (CBT),” said Tim
Zilke, ASE President & CEO. “The initial practice tests offered
will be A1 through A8 and P2. Plans are in the works for practice
tests across collision, truck, and the Advanced Level areas.”
Vouchers for the practice tests are available online through
the ASE Store site, The cost varies based on
the number ordered: 1–2 vouchers—$14.95 each; 3–24 vouchers—$12.95 ea.; 25+ vouchers—$11.95 ea. (Employers should
contact ASE for special pricing on quantities of 500 or more.)
The Official ASE Practice Tests are computer-based and mimic
the actual ASE CBT certification tests as closely as possible. Once
completed, the user can view and print a performance report.
The report shows the questions organized by content areas,
with a brief description of the question, and indicates if the
question was answered correctly. Users have the ability to go back
to any of the questions from this page and see the entire question,
plus the explanation of why one particular answer is correct and
the other answers are incorrect

questions are
featured in
each test.

And the Winner Is...George Paleologos, an ASE-certified
Master technician with multiple ASE certifications from Chicago,
was selected as the winner of the 2009 ASE Race Experience.
His name was selected from the list of technicians who registered
to take an ASE test in 2009 or registered for the contest on the
ASE website. As the winner, George received an expense-paid trip
for two to Phoenix, Arizona to attend a race event and meet driver
Kasey Kahne in person. Visit the ASE website at

NATEF Launches
a New E-Learning
for Programs
NATEF launched Standard 11-E-learning in the
2009–2010 school year. This standard was established
to help programs having difficulty meeting the hour
requirements for program certification. Some of the
highlights of the standard are:
n E-learning must take place outside of the classroom
and lab/shop time and may count for up to 25 percent
of the required hours in each area.
n Instruction must include tests to assess student
knowledge and understanding of content.
n An electronic Learning Management System (LMS) must
be incorporated to track student progress and provide
reports to the instructor.
n E-learning software providers must establish the average
time required to complete a learning activity.
n Programs must meet six criteria to apply for certification
using E-learning hours.
n E-learning must be available to all students enrolled
in a program.
n Standard 11-E-learning is optional, not required.
“To find out more about E-Learning
Standard for Programs, see the
NATEF website at”
NATEF and Competitions:
The Back-Story
SkillsUSA—National Competition,
Kansas City, Missouri
All the secondary and post-secondary
Gold, Silver, and Bronze medal winners
in automobile technology were from ASE-certified/NATEF programs
this year. All of these winners scored in the top 3% on the written
test. The Gold Medal winner in the post-secondary competition had
the highest written test score and the Silver Medal winner had the
third highest written test score. In the past, there has been a strong
correlation between the medal winners and their performance on the
written test. This year continued to support history.
In the collision repair and refinish categories, the winners in the
secondary and post-secondary refinishing technology and secondary
and post-secondary collision repair categories from ASE-certified/
NATEF programs had a strong showing as well. Five of the six medalists in collision repair were from certified programs; two of the six
in refinishing technology were from certified programs (but all had
certified automobile programs at the school).
Meanwhile, the three U.S. students who competed in
Automobile Technology, Autobody Repair, and Car Painting
at the Global Competition in Vancouver, B.C., were all from
ASE-certified/NATEF programs.
Open for Business
Program Numbers
Hit New High
Despite the recent economic downturn, NATEF
continues to see growth in the number of certified
programs nationwide. This past summer, the
number of certified programs reached an all-time
high of 2,364 programs. Additionally, NATEF
continues to receive high numbers of applications
for program certification.
