Two Canadians are on the Auto Care Association’s annual list of World Class Technicians.
Kit Mak of Vancouver, B.C., and Mark Robinson of Mississauga, Ont. were on the list of 45 technicians across North America given the 2019 World Class Technician award.
The program is held in partnership with the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE).
ASE and Auto Care Association provide the annual designation to recognize professional technicians who have achieved the extraordinary accomplishment of ASE certification in 22 specialty areas during the 2018 certification test administration.
The tests include: A1-A8 (automotive), T1-T8 (medium/heavy truck), B2-B5 (collision repair) and L1, L2 (advanced).
More than 2,000 technicians have earned “World Class Technician” status since the inception of ASE more than 30 years ago.
The last Canadians to qualify (James Mcleod Sr. of Newmarket, Ont. and Tony Tasillo of Moffat, Ont.) did so in 2017. Once qualified, the World Class distinction is valid for life.
