      The National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) has introduced an Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems (ADAS) Specialist Certification test (L4).
      The test is designed to identify technicians who possess knowledge of the skills required to diagnose, service and calibrate ADAS on automobiles, SUVs and light-duty trucks.
      “Because ADAS service is becoming a very important vehicle repair service, our stakeholders requested that we develop a certification test that demonstrates that automotive service professionals are qualified to perform ADAS service,” said Tim Zilke, ASE president and CEO. “We worked closely with service technicians, service representatives from vehicle and engine manufacturers, aftermarket trainers and technical educators to develop questions that deal with practical problems experienced by technicians in their work with vehicles that include ADAS.”
      The ASE ADAS Specialist test (L4) will cover content focused on the diagnosis, service and calibration of radar, camera, ultrasonic and other advanced driver-assistance systems. Many of the questions relate to a sample vehicle with advanced driver-assistance systems technology used by most manufacturers. This vehicle is described in the

      Steve Bernasek, diesel technologies instructor and team lead for automotive programs at the East Valley Institute of Technology (EVIT) in Mesa, Arizona, has been named the 2021 Byrl Shoemaker Instructor of the Year by the ASE Education Foundation.
      Bernasek received his award during the recent ASE Board of Governors meeting in Scottsdale, Arizona.
      An ASE-certified technician for the past 22 years, Bernasek has taught at EVIT since 2016. He serves as the team lead of the diesel, automotive technologies and collision repair programs. EVIT offers over 40 career training programs for high school students and adults, and EVIT’s automotive programs have had a history of success as retired EVIT teacher Randy Baker also was named the Byrl Shoemaker award winner in 2015.
      This prestigious award is named after Byrl Shoemaker, the past executive director of vocational education in Ohio. Shoemaker is considered the father of the National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation (NATEF) and the national ASE accreditation system that automotive education programs use today.
      “Everyone at ASE would like to congratulate Steve Bernasek for earning one of the industry’s most esteemed honors,” said Mike Coley, ASE Education Foundation president. “Great instructors are the axle upon which all automotive education turns, and therefore, we are very pleased to recognize Steve as an outstanding example of excellence in automotive instruction.”
