The National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) and Thomson Delmar Learning recognized outstanding technicians at a recent awards banquet sponsored by ASE. At the banquet, ASE and Thomson Delmar Learning honored Steve Driza, Jr. who received the highest composite score on the fall 2005 and spring 2006 ASE exams, scoring highest out of 350,000 other test-takers, earning him the Master Automotive Technician award.
Driza’s performance earned him the well deserved Thomson Delmar Learning/ASE Master Automotive Technician of the Year award, which came complete with a plaque and monetary award as well as an all-expenses paid trip to San Antonio, TX, for himself and his wife. Driza has been an automotive technician for 30 years and has earned the reputation of being extremely dedicated to his job. He has many loyal customers due to his hard-working nature and his impressive skill.
"It’s hard-working technicians like Steve who remind us why creating our ASE Test Preparation materials is so worth while," said Kristen Davis, director of professional automotive and trucking learning solutions at Thomson Delmar Learning. "His exemplary work and dedication to the trade are exactly what we wish for all technicians. Like ASE, Thomson Delmar Learning strives for excellence and it’s our goal that the products we create help technicians reach excellence in their own careers."
