Re: How well can you do on this knowledge quiz??? (round 2)
Imagine PAYING MONEY out of your own pocket, to subject yourself to these tests for certification....to prove you know what you are doing, even though so little of the general public has any clue what ASE is, what the certification tests are, and couldn't care less. (Everyone wearing a sewn on name tag is exactly the same)
Imagine taking 8 or more of the ASE tests in a single evening, after a full day of work, without so much as a drive-thru cheeseburger to keep your stomach from grumbling for the next 1-5 hours.
Imagine the stress of knowing that passing tests might mean a pay raise.....Failing tests might mean a significant pay cut.
Imagine half (random #) the mechanics in this industry couldn't pass a single ASE test if their life depended on it, and couldn't care less.
Imagine how discouraging it would be to know that many of those people who couldn't pass a single ASE test are able to make more money than the knowledgeable tech who spent his/her own money to take the tests to prove competence in various areas of auto repair so he can get a pay raise....that might amount to a mere pittance.
