Automotive Service Excellence-Education Foundation (formally known as A-YES)
[ ASE-EF ]
Right now, new car and truck dealerships are paying more than ever to hire and retain the best employees for their service and collision repair departments. The Automotive Service Excellence-Education Foundation Program (formally known as A-YES) serves as a resource to help develop skilled technicians to fill those positions. Not only is the ASE-EF program essential to meet this ever-growing demand, it is a great way to introduce Houston’s youth to a fulfilling and rewarding career field.
The ASE-EF Program is a partnership among participating auto manufacturers, dealers and select high school/vocational schools.
This is an industry-wide “school-to-career” effort to address the nationwide need for qualified service technicians.
