Episode 34: ASEs

On this week’s GTW, we dish pretty hard on ASE testing. Realistically someone who has never picked up a wrench could study for the test, pass it, and be an ASE certified technician. We think that it is a bit of a scam- they make money on the test, they make money on the practice tests, they make money on the parts test- and what are they proving? Just because you can pass the test doesn’t necessarily mean that you know what you’re doing! We know that there are ASE certified techs out there that are absolutely brilliant at actually fixing cars, but we know for every one of those there is a technician with their ASE’s that cant fix a sandwich. Also Uncle Jimmy talks about body cavity searches and pat downs, having trouble spelling his name, and asks about some of your ASE horror stories.
