For automotive technicians working in the area, Grays Harbor College now provides Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) certification and re-certification testing. Until recently, those working in auto mechanics fields had to travel to Longview or Puyallup for these exams.
For those already working in the field, the renewals are good for 5 years, and the testing is handled by Jim Sorensen, GHC testing specialist. For more information about the ASE mechanic testing, contact him at 360.538.4049, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students in the College’s Automotive Technology program now take the initial certification tests prior to graduation, according to instructor Denis Samson. The first student to prepare and successfully complete the tests was Brandon Reeson, who graduated last June and now has relocated to Bellingham for a job in his field and possibly continuing his education at Western Washington University. Reeson earned 9 ASE certificates before he graduated, which are good for the first two years of his new career.
To inquire about GHC’s Automotive Technology program, please contact the instructor, Denis Samson, 360.538.4131, email@example.com, or the College’s Workforce Education office at 360.538.4011.
