The Stark State College Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) test preparation elective courses are designed to prepare the student for the ASE certification and testing process. ASE is the nationally recognized industry standard for automotive technician certification.  

In the ASE Preparation Test elective, students will access ASE practice tests, instructional videos, technical reference materials, and discussion forums via Stark State College’s approved learning management system. Instructor-led discussions will cover ASE certification areas A-1 Engine Repair, A-4 Suspension and Steering, A-5 Brakes, A-6 Electrical/Electronic Systems, and A-7 Heating and Air Conditioning.

In the Applied Automotive Principles elective, students will develop greater confidence and better hands-on skills through an instructor-guided work experience in an automotive lab environment. By referencing service information and applying a strategy-based diagnostic approach, students will be able to reinforce their existing technical skills and develop new service techniques that will help them to be better prepared for ASE certification and to enter the workplace as an automotive technician. Hands-on labs will directly relate to ASE certification areas A-1 Engine Repair, A-4 Suspension and Steering, A-5 Brakes, A-6 Electrical/Electronic Systems, and A-7 Heating and Air Conditioning.

The courses listed are electives to the automotive technology associate degree program (2250).
