an ASE certification? I believe it's the highest level of automotive certification in cross-manufacturer certification. It means you're a pro in every area.

Check out UTI's offerings and Wyotech's offerings, and see what better fits you. Who knows, maybe I'll even see you on campus.

An ASE you get by applying for it, and taking the test at a test center.

I can;t find anything for an 'AS' certification. Maybe it's a typo?

This is the classes for the college.

AUTOMOTIVE TECHNOLOGY:
Evergreen college automotive department offers two AS degree programs: Drivetrain and Chassis, Fuel and electrical. Certificates of specialization include: Engine service, drivetrain and chassis, fuel and electrical, american honda, and advanced automotive training.

There are courses like AUTOMOTIVE SYSTEMS, AUTO ELECTRONICS, but should I take the beginning classes wich is automotive systems because I never took a class yet.

How much do these courses cost to take? And also, if you think that the one course may help you a little then theres not reason really not to take it.

they dont cost that much and its 3 units long which is like a month and you do it for like 4 hours a day and 4 days a week.

For the AUTOMOTIVE SYSTEM class (beginning class) it says, This class covers vehicle systems and prepares students for advanced auto classes.

Im taking this in the summer and I'll be a junior in high school next year,

Sounds good and worth it also. If it helps you gain knowledge in the areas you dont really know much about. And i'm guessing you amay already know what 'AS' stands, i may be wrong but you might have just said it Automotive Systems. As for the classes though, i'd like to find some of those in my area.

NO! AUTOmotive system is just one of the beginning classes cause it covers the basic systems. Would I be getting a certificate or degree if I take the classes? What is AS DEGREE???
