PALM BAY, Florida – Jonathan Dawsey, an ASE Certified automotive technician from Palm Bay, was recently honored with a national achievement award as the Midas International/ASE Master Automobile Technician of the Year.

Fifty-two automotive professionals were recognized on November 14, 2018, at the Fall Board of Governors meeting of the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) held at Pier Sixty-Six Hotel and Marina in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

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. David Bruzzese, Manager, Midas Training; Ted Hayes, Chair of the ASE Board of Directors; and Timothy Zilke, ASE President & CEO, presented the award to Dawsey.

“Jonathan, who is an automobile technician at Midas of Melbourne, 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 Zilke.

“ASE has honored extraordinary industry professionals from across the nation for more than 40 years,” Zilke continued. “This is made possible by the support of our many award sponsors, whose ranks include some of the best-known names in the industry. We are proud to partner with Midas International to recognize Jonathan’s commitment to excellence in providing the very best in vehicle repair service to his extended community. This dedication is reflected in the talented professionals we recognize each year and Jonathan represents the best of the best.”

Forty-one companies from both OEM and Aftermarket segments sponsored the individual technician recognition awards in the Auto, Truck, 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.

The National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) was founded in 1972 as a non-profit, independent organization dedicated to improving the quality of automotive service and repair through voluntary testing and certification of automotive professionals.

Approximately a quarter million ASE Certified automobile, truck, and collision repair technicians, and parts specialists work in dealerships, independent shops, service stations, auto parts stores, fleets, schools, and colleges across the nation. For more information about ASE, visit www.ase.com.
