This is most likely true.

But thats primarily because the link between schools and industry is not all that well developed in the US. Its kind of like get educated first, and then go do exams on your own once you start working. Plus, even the schools that do offer AS in the US, the standard curriculum is simply not uniform, and is not vetted properly (so the standard knowledge of the AS folks that graduate from these institutions is also quite variable).

I looked at this a while ago when I was deciding on where to study for AS, and the US came out 4th on the list I made (UK, Canada, Australia coming out ahead).
