Good luck. I just took three tests on Tuesday and I just got my first ASE patch last week. Pretty sure I just failed the A/C test.

Since I took all 8 original tests five years ago on two separate days, it was easier back then. ASE made an offer that, on the outside, looked like a good deal. Last August or September, they offered to let you take your tests 6 months in advance. However, I found that they put a little caveat in the offer that essentially said you'd lose 6 months of your five years' certification. I threw it away, saying they could "blow it out their @$$." Anyway, eight tests and one sore shoulder later, I did okay AFAIK. We'll see. If I pass all and keep my recerts, I've gotta treat myself. Difficulty: no hookers/blow.:D

I love the Canadian system, have to go through 4 years of apprenticeship training, (2 months school 10 months on the job training) then once that is done, You get your Journeyman's Certificate and you do not have to re-certify again ever.

Ah, but it's a proven fact that in a technical profession (white or blue collar)
you generally have to learn or retrain every two to five years. The NIASE helps on that by having testing on a five-year cycle basis.

working on heavy equipment is so much easier than dealing with all those certificates.
