Matthew Wolfe studied automotive technology at Central Pennsylvania Institute of Science and Technology in Pleasant Gap, Pennsylvania, and diesel industrial technology at Universal Technical Institute (UTI) in Exton, Pennsylvania. 

Matthew Wolfe of Rebersburg, Pennsylvania, was named the 2018 Mitchell 1/Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) Technician of the Future during the ASE Fall Board of Governors Meeting and Annual Technician Awards, held recently in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Wolfe received a $1,000 cash prize, a one-year subscription to ProDemand auto repair software from Mitchell 1 along with airfare and hotel accommodations to attend the event to receive his award.

“We congratulate Matthew on being named the 2018 Technician of the Future,” said Nick DiVerde, senior marketing director, Mitchell 1. “His accomplishments have demonstrated his commitment to excelling in his chosen field and we know he will be successful in his future endeavors.”

Wolfe studied automotive technology at Central Pennsylvania Institute of Science and Technology in Pleasant Gap, Pennsylvania, and diesel industrial technology at Universal Technical Institute (UTI) in Exton, Pennsylvania.

His accomplishments include being named Automotive Student of the Year 2017 by Central Pennsylvania Institute of Science and Technology; earning fifth place in 2016 and second place in 2017 in the Universal Technical Institute Top Tech Challenge; receiving a full scholarship to Universal Technical Institute and being named top of the class student speaker at the UTI graduation.

Wolfe said he decided to become an automotive technician because he has always loved figuring out how things work. In his free time he says he enjoys collecting older garden tractors and riding classic motorcycles. He sees the value of his ASE certification as it allows him to have confidence in his automotive knowledge and it’s a way to let customers know that their cars are in good hands.
