ASE School Bus Study Guide Page 3 Overview Introduction The Official ASE Study Guide for the School Bus Tests is designed to help technicians study for the ASE certification tests. It includes detailed information about the technical knowledge covered in the School Bus series. And if needed, you should find it easier to select additional reference material that will help you prepare for your test(s). ASE voluntary certification helps technicians prove their abilities to themselves, to their employers, and to their customers. By passing ASE tests you will earn the most valuable credential available to school bus technicians. Because the tests are tough, you’ll have the satisfaction of proving to yourself that you are among the elite in your profession. What’s more, these credentials are recognized throughout the U.S. Certified technicians promote customer trust and improve the image of the industry. And trust and professionalism are the first steps to a better, more prosperous business. ASE encourages you to take the tests and to join the proven pros who wear the ASE Blue Seal of Excellence ® . How Do I Become Certified? There are seven tests in the School Bus Technician certification series. If you pass at least one test, and have at least two years of hands-on working experience in school bus repair, then you will become certified as an ASE School Bus Technician. (Appropriate vocational training may be substituted for up to one year of work experience.) If you pass tests S1 through S6, and meet the experience requirement, you will earn the certificate of Master School Bus Technician. If you are currently certified in Diesel Engines (A9, H2, S2, or T2) and Electrical/Electronic Systems (A6, H6, S6, or T6), you are eligible to take the L2 Electronic Diesel Engine Diagnosis Specialist test. Your test results will be emailed to you immediately following your testing appointment. Results will not be given over the phone nor will they be released to anyone without your written permission. If you fail a test, you must wait 30 days from the test date before you can purchase it again.

Page 4 ASE School Bus Study Guide Overview (continued) Certification credentials are valid for five years. This ensures that certified technicians are recognized as being up-to-date in their profession. If it has been almost five years since you passed a test, it is time to register for the corresponding recertification test. Most recertification tests are about half the length of the regular tests.
