ST. LOUIS, March 22, 2019 /CNW/ -- Of the estimated 879,000 technicians working in the United States, less than 1 percent have received the prestigious World Class Technician Award presented by the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) and the Auto Care Association.
Enterprise Fleet Management, which operates one of the nation's largest automotive service departments, is proud to announce that a total of five of its National Service Department (NSD) technicians have received the ASE World Class Technician designation.
In 2017, Enterprise NSD Customer Support Supervisor Kelley Hatlee was recognized with the award. And four NSD employees just appeared on the 2019 slate of honorees: Account Managers Travis Guenzler and Jason Hodge, National Service Supervisor Ryan Egleston, and Service Advisor Amos Eaton. Combined, the five honorees bring 126 years of automotive experience to Enterprise Fleet Management.
World Class Technician
"This is an incredible honor for our team," said Tom Gieseking, Vice President of Fleet Operations for Enterprise Fleet Management. "The fact that we now have five ASE World Class Technicians is a huge accomplishment, especially considering only a few dozen were recognized in North America this year. The honor speaks volumes to Enterprise's commitment to ensuring our clients receive top-notch service."
To earn the respected status of "World Class Technician," individuals are required to test and obtain ASE certification in 22 specialty areas. In addition, individuals must acquire the titles of ASE Master Automobile Technician, ASE Master Medium/Heavy Duty Truck Technician and ASE Master Collision Repair Technician, as well as two advanced level diagnostic certifications in gasoline and diesel engines. Once classified, the World Class distinction is valid for life.

Enterprise Fleet Management's National Service Department comprises more than 100 ASE-certified technicians and has been recognized with the ASE "Blue Seal of Excellence" award for 23 consecutive years, an industry record. In 2016, Enterprise Fleet Management also was named to InformationWeek magazine's "Elite 100" for setting the bar on innovative and creative information technology (IT) programs that improve business operations.
