Durham School Services Earns ASE Blue Seal Recognition

SAVANNAH, Tenn. — Durham School Services, a leading provider of student transportation, earned recognition from the prestigious Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) Blue Seal Program.

“Every school day, many of our students board Durham buses to get to and from school safely, and their safety is the highest priority of all those involved,” said Michael Davis, director of Hardin County Schools. “I would like to personally congratulate Durham for achieving this recognition as it showcases their high standards in regards to maintenance and safety. We are proud to have a transportation partner like Durham.”

At least 75 percent of technicians performing diagnosis and repairs at a location must be ASE certified in order to qualify for the ASE Blue Seal of Excellence Recognition Program. Each area of service offered in the maintenance shop must be covered by at least one ASE-certified technician.

“We pride ourselves on providing the safest transportation, and this starts with our buses,” said Brian Riley, general manager for Durham. “Our maintenance team earning ASE Blue Seal recognition is a well-deserved achievement. They always go above and beyond to ensure our fleet is well maintained, and I’m proud to have them a part of our team.”

The National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence is a non-profit organization that works to improve the quality of vehicle repair and service by testing and certifying automotive professionals. ASE certified technicians work in every part of the automotive service industry.
