Question Canada Automotive Certifications

Hi everyone,

I am currently going to school and getting my automotive degree and waiting on my ASE Certification paperwork. Once I am done with school I plan to move to BC. Does anyone know if the ASE Certification crosses over or do I have to recertify with a Canadian agency? I would rather know this now than get there and not be able to work. I live about 1hr south of the border so if I need to come on up and take some tests I can do that.

Thanks in advance,
Ron

Maybe Do a BC Government web site search for Job Qualifying.

Did some searches and I am coming up blank on if my ASE will convert or not. I think after the first of the year a call ti immigration will be in order. I didn't know if there were any mechanics on the board here that would know or not.

I had never heard of ASE in Canada but I did a search on google and came up with a few hits. According to http://www.canadiandriver.com/articles/iw/blueseal.htm there are 35,000 ASE techs in Canada.
I've got my BC Certificate of Qualification in Automotive Mechanical Repair (issued by the gov't) which means I am certified to work on any part of any car or light truck. I also have my Inter-Provincial ticket which means my qualifications are recognized anywhere in Canada.
To get licenced here you apprentice for 6 (I think) years. It was 4 years when I got mine. Each year you go to school for 6 weeks. It used to be 4 weeks. After that you write a big test and you're done. Another test gets you the Inter-Provincial.
Apparently most places in the US will recognize a Canadian TQ too.
I've always wondered about ASE certification. You always hear about people writing and passing the tests and becoming ASE certified without ever lifting a wrench.

You can pass an ASE test without ever lifting a wrench, but the certification requires 2 years automotive experience. I have found some info on the inter-provincial qualifications and that is pretty neat.
