Powerstroke Certified?

I believe this is my first post, so hey to all! I'm a member of at FTE and decided I should be on both


My question is : currently I am in an Advanced Diesel Tech class for 2 years. I plan on getting my ASE certification soon, I just need to verify if they do online classes, and then I want to become Powerstroke certified. I want to be certified on the Ford diesels. Does anyone know if this is even possible, and if so, how?

ford diesel certification is totaly seprate from ase certification. Ase is not even required for being master tech certified just 5 five years at a dealership.

you can go through the ASSET program, but you will cover everything ford related not diesel though, you will have to do the diesel cirriculum once working in the dealer. they also offer the FACT program as an add-on at most tech schools like UTI ect. if you really want to wrench on these powerstrokes for a living, you are sick for one j/k lol the ASSET program is the way to go. takes 2 years or so, but you come out senior master get some experience, work your way through the diesel cirr and there u r.

IMHO - word of mouth will get you more business than any certification will.

From what it sounds like the Ford master tech is much better than ASE. No offense to any of the ASE folks on here but... I have seen ASE techs that did not know what they were doing, they could pass the test but not do the hands on.

When I was working in field I never did worry about ASE but I did get a couple manufacturer specific certifications because the dealer paid for them. Got a few free trips out of town and a few days working at a regional training center. BTW - I was at a Nissan dealer and it has been about 13 years since I worked there...
