The National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) has declared June 9-15 as National Automotive Service Professionals Week. Building on the success of Automotive Service Professionals Day established in 2001, ASE launched National Automotive Service Professional's Week in 2005 to honor the commitment and dedication of automotive, truck and collision technicians, along with parts specialists and other support professionals who serve the motoring public. This will be the ninth consecutive year that ASE continues this recognition, and has it listed in the 2014 Chase's Calendar of Events.
“ASE created National Automotive Service Professionals Week to recognize the men and women who service and maintain the highly complex vehicles upon which we depend for our daily transportation,” said Tim Zilke, ASE president and CEO. “The training and education necessary to properly diagnose and repair today’s sophisticated vehicle fleet requires a significant level of knowledge, skill and dedication, and ASE is proud to help recognize these individuals for their commitment to their customers and their profession.”
The National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence was established in 1972 as a non-profit organization to help improve the quality of automotive service and repair through the voluntary testing and certification of automotive technicians and parts specialists. Today, more than 360,000 ASE-certified professionals work in dealerships, independent shops, collision repair shops, auto parts stores, fleets, schools and colleges throughout the country.
