June Designated ‘Automotive Service Professionals Month’

ASE says it's the ideal time to recognize skilled automotive professionals and the valuable services they provide.

The National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) designated June as Automotive Service Professionals Month (ASPM), the ideal time it says to recognize skilled automotive professionals and the valuable service they provide from coast to coast.

The ASE designation helps car owners easily identify automotive professionals who have proven themselves to be competent and knowledgeable. The process to become ASE Certified requires qualified work experience and passing a challenging test for each certification. ASE Certified technicians are required to prove their technical knowledge by retesting every five years to keep their certifications current. Earning the prestigious ASE Blue Seal emblem signifies that a service professional possesses the essential knowledge and skills needed to perform service and repairs with excellence, according to ASE.

“We welcome everyone to join ASE in celebrating Automotive Service Professionals Month,” said Tim Zilke, ASE president and CEO. “Please take a moment to recognize vehicle service pros and thank them for the important work they perform whether in person or on social media with the hashtag #ASPM.”
