National Express Corporation honours ASE master technicians
National Express Corporation, a leader in student transportation, is proud to honour 15 employees who were certified by the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) as master technicians. A dinner was held on Wednesday night (5 February) to celebrate the employees achieving their certification.
"We are proud to recognise our master technicians who showcase our commitment to safety every day through their work," said David A. Duke, CEO of NEC. "To demonstrate our commitment to our professional maintenance team we have created a program that recognises and rewards our maintenance staff who achieve ASE master technician."
ASE is an independent, non-profit organisation that works to improve the quality of vehicle repair and service by testing and certifying repair and service professionals. To become a certified ASE master technician requires months of studying and passing six main parts to the test. To remain certified the technicians must take and pass a recertification test every five years. Currently, there are 1,483 master school bus technicians in the United States.
"As industry leaders, we are dedicated to putting the safest vehicles on the road," said Duke. "When it comes to maintaining our buses and ensuring passenger safety we go above and beyond state and federal requirements. Our master technicians help us lead the way."
