From the Midland Daily News website:
Twenty-three auto technology students recently gained certification through the Automotive Service Excellence test for electrical and electronic systems.
More than 80 percent of the high school students enrolled through the Clare-Gladwin Regional Education Service District’s Career and Technology Education program passed the test to achieve certification.
The CTE auto tech students took the ASE test for electrical/electronic systems in early January. Instructor Rich Hollister was impressed with the results.
“The student ASE testing is a very hard test, and unlike any other test platform that these students have ever had,” Hollister said. “Not only does it test the students on the area of automotive repair that they have been studying, it also tests each student’s ability to problem solve. The technology of the modern automobile is complicated, and to repair it properly, a technician has to have very good math skills and the ability to follow a flow chart.
