Here is one of my favorite big trucks I see a few times a year around Arkansas.

Certifications are easy. If you have been around a shop for a while you should be able to pass nearly any test no problem. Especially ones like ase. If you can read a book you can pass their test lol. Before anybody gets the wrong idea, I'm happily married with a son that is almost 2. No flirting or funny business from me.

I'm the jealous boyfriend, but there's really only one who seems to keep trying to piss around the territory I've already marked.

Absolutely true about the certs. I was an auto mechanic for around 20 years, I took all of the ASE Automotive tests while I was still in school and working part time in a shop (the shop owner signed me off on the minimum work requirement) and passed them all, so I was an SAE Master Automotive Technician right from the get-go. That allowed me to leap-frog over a couple of other guys in the pay scale right away. Nice.

Yeah I've had guys come in my shop lookin for work and they like to throw that ase cert out like its there golden ticket. You wouldn't believe how many guys I've seen that were ase certified and didn't know a wrench from a screwdriver (ok maybe that's a bit exagerated, but not much). I think it is something good to have but it really doesnt prove much to me. Everytime I hire someone I work them for a week or two to see what they know before I put them on payroll.
