Clinton Brett was recognised with the Automotive Education Excellence Award

With over 30 years of experience, Clinton founded Diesel Help Australia 10 years ago in response to the shortage of aftermarket common rail diesel training.
“I am proud to be the chosen winner of the inaugural AAAA 2024 Automotive Education Excellence award,” Clinton said.
“Firstly, I would like to thank my wife Jodi Brett for secretly nominating me for this award and her continued hard work behind the scenes in Diesel Help Australia.
“I would like to thank the AAAA and the judges who recognised our achievements as the best in class. I would also like to thank the enthusiasm from award sponsor, ZF Friedrichshafen AG.
“I work on a similar motto as ZF – see. think. act.
“It is an honour to be awarded for our face to face, group packages, and online training courses.
“I continue creating training on all applications of diesels systems. We are delivering, adding, updating, or revising courses for old and new diesel systems, AdBlue, DPF, EGR, scan tool diagnostics and Diesel Service Advisor training.
“Our technical bulletins assist our members, recognised as training to reduce time diagnosing. These bulletins are proven techniques in our online library and are linked to videos and other valuable resources, accessible via their account login.
“With our recent release of Global Basic membership, we have made it even more accessible and cost effective for large groups and organisations.
“One of the tasks Jodi has been tirelessly working on behind the scenes, is the ease of access via the website for groups with 20 staff to 100 or more members to access our expanding library of 240+ bulletins.”
Clinton has the following message for the industry.
“As the winner of this prestigious award, I ask Australian technicians to step up and have a go at delivering training,” Clinton said.
“I have witnessed the talent shared on social media and most vehicle owners won’t appreciate your skills as much as the next generation of automotive technicians.
“We are an evolving industry and though it’s easy to get distracted by media hype around EV and hybrid, remember these systems are a drop in the ocean compared to the continued dominance of diesel and EFI in all sectors.
“I ask all AAAA suppliers of parts and services, to band together and share everyone’s training courses with your clients – we all deserve to have options.
“Technicians are missing out on valuable training in their area. Whether it’s diesel, EFI, EV, hybrid or powertrain training, workshops will appreciate your efforts to improving and lifting the industry as a whole.”
