Automotive Service Professionals Month 2024

The National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) has designated June 2024 as Automotive Service Professionals Month (ASPM).

In honor of ASPM, ASE has created a commemorative logo that companies, organizations, and individuals can use to acknowledge and pay tribute to vehicle service professionals. The logo and other ASE digital assets can be downloaded free of charge by visiting ASEtoolkit.com.

ASE urges industry members to embrace Automotive Service Professionals Month as a platform for expressing gratitude to service professionals and conducting recognition events, special programs, and other celebrations.

The ASE Education Foundation, International Truck, and IC Bus recently partnered to provide a unique training opportunity for 10 outstanding instructors from ASE-accredited post-secondary medium/heavy truck training programs to promote safety further.

The 10 instructors were chosen to attend a five-day, hands-on training session at the Navistar OEM state-of-the-art training center in Woodridge, Illinois. They received a $1,000 scholarship to underwrite travel expenses.
