"Professional technicians take their technical skills very seriously," notes Ron Pyle, president of the Automotive Service Association and chairman of NASTF. "The Automotive Service Association is proud of our Missouri-Kansas affiliate for the international acclaim they have earned for their annual VISION HiTech Training & Expo event and very glad NASTF can be a part of it."

Sheri Hamilton, executive director of ASA-MoKan remarked, "VISION is all about the automotive service professional and we recognize the value of NASTF as a resource to technicians. We are very excited and proud to add NASTF to our long list of professional attractions."

NASTF was established in 2000 to identify, communicate and resolve gaps in the availability and accessibility of automotive service information, service training, diagnostic tools, and equipment for the benefit of automotive service professionals and their customers. NASTF was incorporated in 2006 as a 501(c)(6) not-for-profit organization. Additional details can be found at
