Master Military Technician Certification Requirements:
Those who are certified in tests MIL2 – MIL8 will be recognized as ASE Certified Master Military Tactical Wheeled Vehicle Technicians.

Experience Requirements (MIL1):

There is no experience requirement to take the MIL1 test, as it is a fundamentals/entry-level test. There will not be a recertification offered for the MIL1 test. It is expected that the soldier/tech will progress to the MIL2 – MIL8 tests.

Experience Requirements (MIL2 - MIL8):
To complete the certification requirements you must submit an experience report from outlining, at minimum, two years of full-time hands-on experience working on autos or trucks.

Recognition:
Those who become certified in at least one area will be recognized as an ASE Certified Military TWV Technician. Those who are certified in all seven tests MIL2 – MIL8 will be recognized as ASE Certified Master Military TWV Technicians. Successful candidates will receive an official certificate and an appropriate insignia.

Recertification:
Technicians must retest every five years to retain their certification. The Military Tactical Wheeled Vehicle recertification tests (MIL2R – MIL8R) are about half as long as the initial certification tests.
