Certification, Licensing, and Special Requirements

Certification or Licensing

Many employers require their technicians to obtain certification from the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence. To be eligible for certification, applicants must have at least two years of experience in the field and pass the examinations related to their specialty. The institute offers nearly 60 certification tests for mechanics who repair and maintain cars and light trucks, medium-heavy trucks, school and transit buses, and military tactical-wheeled vehicles. Credentials are also available in specialized knowledge areas such as collision repair, damage analysis, alternate fuels, advanced engine performance, and hybrid/electric vehicle technology.
