Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) Certification is a widely recognized mark of achievement in all aspects of the automotive industry. Earning an ASE Certification not only proves to customers that AutoZoners know their parts and products, it identifies them as a top source for trustworthy advice.
ASE CERTIFICATION PROGRAM
There are multiple opportunities to take the ASE Certification tests throughout the year. Autozoners who pass the test are eligible for reimbursement.

AutoZoners must give managers two weeks notice if the appointment conflicts with any scheduled work hours.
TEST CENTER POLICIES
AutoZoners must follow these instructions:
- Arrive at the test center on time.
- Bring admission ticket and a non-expired photo identification.
It is extremely important that you follow these instructions. Failing to do so could result in your being counted as a no-show for your test.
