National recognition for service professionals established by ASE

Posted on April 18, 2006

To honor the nation’s multitude of specialists who service buses, trucks, cars and other vehicles, June 12-18, 2006, has been declared National Automotive Service Professionals Week. Building on the success of Automotive Professionals Day, which began in 2001, the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) established the special week last year. ASE President Ron Weiner said that the event seeks to “recognize the men and women who service and maintain the highly complex vehicles upon which we depend so much for our day-to-day transportation.” The institute will provide a form letter to be used in petitioning governors of each state to mark National Automotive Service Professionals Week. Last year, 27 states issued proclamations honoring the event. Meanwhile, ASE is slated to debut its transit bus exams — Transit Bus Brakes (H4) and Transit Bus Electrical and Electronic Systems (H6) — in May. Additional exams are planned.
