ASE Certification Costs

The real cost of getting ASE certified 

Well, you've decided to take the ASE certification exam - great! Now, let's consider your different ASE certification costs, which include:

  • ASE registration fees 
  • ASE test prep materials 
  • ASE classes 

ASE registration fees

The same initial $36 registration fee is applied to enter a testing window for re-certifications. The same per test prices apply to the tests are $37 each L1R and L2R, which are $74 each. You may take as many recertification tests as you want in a registration window but we cap the cost of your tests at $111. So the most anyone would pay to recertify in a single registration window is $147—no matter how many recertification tests are taken.
