Learning to repair today’s complex vehicles requires a high degree of skill. Combining your training with added experience provided by GM ASEP and/or ASE can increase your expertise.
The GM Automotive Service Education Program (ASEP) is a strategic alliance among students, General Motors, ACDelco, and more than 56 carefully selected colleges and universities. Graduates of the program earn an Associate Degree in Applied Science (or similar). This process streamlines the path to becoming a Certified Service technician to only 2 years.
With this paid 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 GM-trained and in touch with the latest 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 experience necessary to do the job right. This high-level training directly benefits both the student and the ACDelco Service Center.
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.
Train From Within
Your lube tech, car runner, or detailer could become your next technician. If you employ someone who shows promise, connect with your local GM ASEP college and help develop their potential.
Many GM ASEP graduates – with their high level of training and extensive internship experience – will outperform other entry-level technicians.
Each GM ASEP graduate will complete several hundred hours of GM training (Service Technology College or ACDelco training). This saves employees a significant amount in training costs.
