The annual awards banquet spotlights top scorers on the ASE certification tests. Thirty-eight different companies from both OEM and aftermarket segments sponsored the individual technician recognition awards in the auto, truck, collision and parts categories, along with three instructor awards. In addition to looking for top scores on ASE tests, award sponsors examine on-the-job excellence, community service and other factors when selecting honorees.

“ASE has been honoring the best of the best in our industry for more than 40 years, and this year we recognized 45 outstanding individuals from all across the nation,” said Tim Zilke, ASE president and CEO. “We couldn’t do this without the support of our many award sponsors, whose ranks include some of the best-known names in the industry. Their commitment to excellence is reflected in the talented individuals we recognize each year.”
