In addition to being part of a Certified Service Center, each finalist had to meet several requirements including 10 channel partner trainings, six hours of live training and current ASE certification. Auto Value and Bumper to Bumper parts suppliers selected one finalist from their lists of eligible candidates to participate in the national competition. 

“Our affiliated Auto Value and Bumper to Bumper Certified Service Centers employ technicians of the highest caliber you’ll find anywhere, and this year’s Technician of the Year finalists have proven themselves as the best of the best,” said Elizabeth Estes, education liaison for the Aftermarket Auto Parts Alliance’s Sales & Marketing Committee. “This program gives us the opportunity to recognize the commitment each of them has made to training and certification in the automotive industry, and we are delighted to have them together to celebrate their accomplishments.” 

The 13 finalists will travel to Detroit this July for a 90-minute, 100-question custom ASE test to determine the winner. Following the exam, the technicians will enjoy three days of camaraderie, racing and a banquet to crown the champion. 

The winner will receive $2,500 and another exciting trip this November to Phoenix, where he will be honored at the ASE Technician of the Year Award Ceremony as the Auto Value and Bumper to Bumper Technician of the Year.
