ASE Industry Ed. Alliance Honors Instructors
Sept. 12, 2014—The ASE Industry Education Alliance recognized 34 industry instructors in its inaugural class of “recognized automotive instructors,” the organization announced on Friday.
The instructors were honored during the ASE Industry Education Alliance Instructor Training Conference in early August at The Alexander Hotel in Indianapolis. Eleven of the instructors were present to receive their awards.
“The ASE Industry Education Alliance is proud to recognize the best of the best in Career and Technical Education,” said Trish Serratore, president of the National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation (NATEF) and Automotive Youth Educational Systems (AYES). “These outstanding instructors represent the dedication, commitment and experience our industry needs to train the automotive professionals of tomorrow.”
To be recognized, the instructors had to be ASE-certified Master technicians, currently employed at a NATEF accredited program, with at least five years teaching experience, who have placed students in work-based learning assignments, such as AYES or other defined internship model. To qualify, each also had to have an advisory committee member affiliated with at least one ASE Industry Education Alliance supporting organization and documented attendance at one instructor training event in the prior year.
