The General Motors Automotive Service Education Program (ASEP) is a strategic alliance among students, General Motors, ACDelco and more than 50 colleges and universities. Graduates of the program earn an Associate Degree in Applied Science (or similar). This process can streamline the path to becoming a Certified Service technician to only two years.
With this program, students have the opportunity to earn while they learn as they alternate between formal classroom training and hands-on work experience at a GM Dealership or ACDelco Service Center. Instructors are in touch with the latest GM automotive technology trends. Theory and practical application come together as students spend time working on vehicles for actual customers, preparing them for a high-tech career in vehicle repair.
WHY CHOOSE GM ASEP?
It takes experience to develop expertise, and GM ASEP equips future service technicians with the skills, knowledge and experience necessary to do the job right. This high-level training directly benefits both the student and the ACDelco Service Center.
GM ASEP graduates – with their high level of training and extensive internship experience – can potentially outperform other entry-level technicians.
RECRUIT AUTOMOTIVE TECHNICIANS
Recruiting qualified technicians is an industry challenge. Student participation in GM ASEP allows GM Dealers or ACDelco Service Centers to train students in their service department processes.
Each GM ASEP graduate will complete several hundred hours of training (Service Technology College or ACDelco training). This can potentially save dealership employees a significant amount in training costs.
TRAIN FROM WITHIN
Your lube tech, car runner or detailer could become your next technician. If you employ someone who shows promise or indicates an interest, connect with your local GM ASEP college and help develop their potential.
