For Hub City Times
LEESBURG, VA – Douglas Bernitt, an ASE Certified bus technician from Auburndale, was recently honored with a national achievement award as the Navistar/ASE Master School Bus Technician of the Year.
Fifty-three automotive professionals were recognized in November, at the Fall Board of Governors meeting of the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) held at the Arizona Grand Resort and Spa in Phoenix, AZ.
The ASE annual awards spotlight top scorers on the ASE Certification tests from among the ranks of the approximately quarter million ASE-certified professionals nationwide. This is the fourth time that Bernitt has won a Navistar award.
“Doug, who is lead technician at Midstate Truck Service in Marshfield, is one of the outstanding ASE-certified professionals recognized annually by different segments of the automotive service and repair industry. Each of these elite technicians is presented with an industry-specific award recognizing their achievement,” said Tim Zilke, ASE president/CEO.
Forty-one companies from both OEM and Aftermarket segments sponsored the individual technician recognition awards in the Auto, Truck, Bus, Collision and Parts categories, along with awards for instructors. 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.
