The National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence has designated June as Automotive Service Professionals Month.

“Automotive Service Professionals Month is the perfect time to recognize skilled professionals for the valuable service they provide to motorists from coast to coast,” said ASE President and CEO Dave Johnson. “We welcome everyone to join ASE in celebrating vehicle service pros and taking a moment to thank them for the important work they perform.”

Automotive service professionals are employed at vehicle dealerships, general repair shops and service stations across the country, performing an essential service to the motoring public by keeping their vehicles in safe, dependable operating condition.
