Certification and Licensure

The Reginoal Testing Center at Manhattan Tech has partnered with various testing delivery providers to make certification and licensure examinations accessible to Manhattan and the surrounding area. We are currently partnered with Educational Testing Services (ETS) and Pearson Vue.  Below you will find the list of the certifications offered by the provider partners here. To find out more information about the certification exams you must contact the provider directly.

Automotive Service Excellence (ASE)

ASE, is short for the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence. Since 1972 our independent non-profit organization has worked to improve the quality of vehicle repair and service by testing and certifying automotive professionals.

ASE promotes excellence in vehicle repair, service and parts distribution. Almost 300,000 Automotive Technicians and Service Professionals hold ASE Certifications. ASE Certified Professionals work in every part of the automotive service industry. ASE certifies automotive technicians and service professionals, not the auto shops.

The ASE tests are administered by appointment.  Candidates need to call 785-320-4406, in advance, to schedule a testing time. In order to schedule an appointment, candidates need to have their ASE ID# and name of exam (example: Code: A1 Engine Repair ASE-0000-0000). Candidates will also need to email their ASE confirmation/receipt to RTC@manhattantech.edu.

Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS)

Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) 2016 provides industry-leading assessments of skills and knowledge through our new project-based testing, giving students and professionals real-world exercises to appraise their understanding of Microsoft Office.

This guarantees that every certified user has demonstrated the ability to command the full features and functionality of Microsoft Office, preparing them for future academic or workforce opportunities.
