The National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) has announced its new E-learning program, “Introduction to
Automobile Service” (IAS).
Delivered exclusively online and
consisting of four e-learning training modules and a separate quiz, the program
focuses on awareness of entry-level tasks related to basic automobile service.
An embedded glossary and safety zone section also will help to promote proper
safety measures. ASE says the IAS program was developed in response to requests
from the industry for an ASE product targeting individuals whose
responsibilities are concentrated in the entry-level career area. This new
e-learning product incorporates modules to both deliver and measure the
knowledge necessary to perform basic tasks.
Here’s an overview of the IAS program:
Preparation and Documentation, includes
the following sections: A. Preparing Vehicle for Service, B. Locating
Information, C. Tools and Equipment, and D. Preparing Vehicle for Customer.
Fluids, Filters, Belts and Hoses
Inspection and Service consists of these sections: A. Underhood (Part 1), B.
Underhood (Part 2), C. Undercar, and D. Filters and Drive
Suspension, Tire, and Brake Inspection

Tire (Part 1), C. Tire (Part 2), and D. Brake.
Body, Battery, Charging and Electrical

A final quiz covering the content in
modules 1 through 4. Upon achieving a passing score, the user earns completion
of the IAS program.
The target audience for this program
includes prospective and entry-level personnel, as well as any service
professional interested in this specialty area, including service writers and
parts professionals. For those new to the industry, the new IAS Program can be the
first step on the path to ASE’s certification program. Users who successfully
pass the IAS Quiz may print a customized certificate of completion, rather than
an ASE certification.
