You’ve often asked the question, “What’s in it for me?”

That’s a great question… The answer? “A lot.”

Actually, if you really think about ASE Certifications, you wouldn’t even need to ask the question. Why? Because you already know the answer.

Making the decision to become certified is a very personal decision. So turn the question inside-out and answer it yourself.

Sure, there’s some risk involved. “They” are going to “test” me. So you ask yourself, “Am I good enough? Will I pass? Are the questions tricky? Are they too specific about another brand of vehicle I don’t work on?”

As you listen intently to yourself, you’ll find dozens of reasons to cast doubt.

But let’s just fast-forward to, “I passed an ASE Certification test!”

Now, ask yourself, “What’s in it for me?”

How about pride, a sense of accomplishment, that wonderful feeling of being recognized by your peers and your Industry! This might help you get a better job, or, you can add this to your résumé. Perhaps one ASE test might lead to another ASE test, then another, onward to a Master ASE Certification. Perhaps a promotion follows. Even bigger career moves after that. More customers, a greener paycheck, a better business! Your mileage may vary.

“What’s in it for me, now?”

You have all the answers.
