license renewal process for Repair Technicians

Technicians wishing to maintain their Repair license must keep ASE A-6, A-8 and L-1 or Bar Specified Diagnostic Training current and complete bar update training. Note: Bar specified diagnostic training is not an alternative to ASE but another path to maintaining your license. The BAR will no longer accept a mix of ASE and ASE Alternative to satisfy the requirement after august of 2014.

The New Bar Specified Diagnostic and Repair Training has taken the place of the Old ASE alternative and certification is good for 5 years upon completion date.
