CHIPOLA AUTOMOTIVE STUDENTS PASS NATIONAL ASE TEST

 

                MARIANNAFour students from Chipola Junior College's Automotive Technology program recently passed the national Automotive Service Excellence Test (ASE). 

                The students are: Jody Toole of Graceville, Jacob Parish of Marianna, Michael Lamb of Marianna, and Steven McArthur of Dothan, Ala.

                The ASE exam is the nationally recognized industry standard for automotive technicians.  Most repair facilities prefer ASE Certified Technicians and pay more for their services.               

                According to John Gardner, CJC Automotive Technology instructor, "The ASE test is a benchmark for automotive technicians and is an outstanding achievement for our students. Most technicians do not attempt the ASE test before working in the automotive field and completing extensive education." 

                The students' success also will help Chipola's Auto Tech program reach its goal of becoming an ASE Certified Program. This designation assures employers that rigorous standards and guidelines set by the industry are being taught within a program.

                Gardner says, "I am very proud of the hard work that our students perform daily which affords them the opportunity of passing the ASE exam. With excellent students and the support of our college administration, the Chipola Automotive Technology program is second to none."
