The annual awards banquet spotlights top scorers on the ASE Certification Tests. Thirty-seven companies from both OEM and Aftermarket segments sponsored the individual technician recognition awards in the Auto, Truck, Collision and Parts categories, along with three instructor awards, and one recognizing a U.S. Air Force technician. In addition to looking for top scores on ASE tests, award sponsors may also consider such factors as on-the-job excellence, community service and more when selecting honorees.

“ASE has been honoring the best of the best in our industry for more than 30 years, and we are proud to once again recognize forty-four outstanding individuals from all across the nation,” said Tim Zilke, ASE President & CEO. “This is all made possible by the support of our many award sponsors, whose ranks include some of the best-known names in the industry. Their commitment to excellence is reflected in the talented individuals we recognize each year.”

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, there are more than 360,000 ASE-certified professionals at work in dealerships, independent shops, collision repair shops, auto parts stores, fleets, schools and colleges throughout the country.
