LEESBURG, Va. (June 9, 2014) — The National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) has declared June 9-15 "National Automotive Service Professionals Week."

ASE said it launched National Automotive Service Professionals 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.

“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.”

ASE is a non-profit organization that provides voluntary testing and certification of automotive technicians and parts specialists.
