CHEYENNE, WYO. — The Laramie County Community College auto body repair program's full-time students received a 100 percent pass rate on industry certification exams taken spring 2017. These students passed the Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) Student Certification exams measuring four knowledge areas required for ASE Master Collision Repair Technician Certification: mechanical and electrical components, structural analysis and damage repair, non-structural analysis and damage repair, and painting and refinishing.
This certification is the first step in building a career as a service professional in the automotive industry. These tests can provide the student with their first industry certification through the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence.
Full ASE Certification requires two years of work experience, therefore, the ASE Student Certification provides industry credentials and assurances to employers while the graduates gain the required work experience.
