The National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) 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 help to promote proper safety measures. 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 Belts.
Suspension, Tire, and Brake Inspection and Service incorporates content within sections: A. Suspension Inspection, B. Tire (Part 1), C. Tire (Part 2), and D. Brake.
Body, Battery, Charging and Electrical Systems Inspection and Service contains sections divided into: A. Body, B. Battery, C. Charging, and D. Electrical
A final quiz covering the content in modules 1 fo 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.
