Subaru is committed to making the customer experience a key driver of why consumers choose to purchase Subaru vehicles. That commitment includes ensuring that our stores and service departments have well-trained, knowledgeable technicians.

 

HOW DO I TEST OUT?

  1. Go to myASE. Create an account if needed and make sure that your Subaru Training ID is stored in your myASE account. For step-by-step instructions, view this tutorial.
  2. Register for one or more of the tests through Subaru Technical Training (details below).
    • Log in to the SKILS Welcome page and click Browse for Training.
    • In the Type section, click the icon that resembles a clipboard with a test on it.
    • View the available Test-Out options and click the title of the one for the appropriate Skill Group you wish to register for.
    • Click the Request button. Note - If you do not have your ASE Technician ID ready to enter on the next screen, DO NOT click request. Use the Back button on your browser to return to the previous page and come back when you have your ID ready to enter.
    • Enter your First and Last names with NO punctuation, and enter your ASE Technician ID formatted as ASE-1111-1111 and then click Submit.
  3. Within 10 days, you will receive an email from ASE, confirming that you are registered. Make sure you have the requested tests, then log onto myASE to schedule your testing appointment. You have 90 days to make an appointment and complete your tests. You can take the tests all at once, or spread them out over several appointments; whichever works best for you. To find testing centers close to you, visit www.ase.com/testcenters.
  4. Optional – while you are logged in, you can also register for ASE certification tests. Because the registration fee has already been paid, you can register and only pay the test fees. You can also schedule and take ASE tests at the same time you are taking the Subaru Training Opt-Out tests.
  5. On your scheduled test date, show up on time at the test center with your current (unexpired) government-issued photo ID in hand. When you finish your Subaru tests, you will receive a printed Notice of Completion to show that you took the test. You will also receive a Pass/Fail score report for any ASE certification tests you take.
  6. Within 10 business days, Subaru Training will let you know whether you successfully tested out or still need to enroll and attend the Subaru Level 2 training class.
