National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence, or ASE, certification and Environmental Protection Agency licensing in refrigerants can help in acquiring a job as a mechanic, notes the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics. Eight areas of ASE mechanical specialization certificates are available.
Potential mechanics can seek one or more of the areas of specialized certification. No work experience is required for certification, but the student does have to pass the certification exam to receive certification, notes ASE. Mechanics acquiring all eight certificates receive the title Master Automobile Technician. Employers can use the fact that an ASE certified mechanic works there as a promotional detail in marketing materials to attract potential customers.
