TOYOTA TECHNICIAN CERTIFICATION KEY POINTS

Important Note: In order to transfer ASE certification test credit into Toyota’s technician certification program, while registering you must select the option that allows ASE to send test information to Toyota. If permission is not allowed, you will not be properly credited for passing ASE tests in Toyota’s technician certification program. Similarly, if you do not provide ASE with your work experience information, you may not be properly credited in Toyota’s technician certification program.
