  GM ASEP - Automotive Student Educational Program

GM ASEP is a strategic alliance between students, Glendale Community
College, GM, and local General Motors dealers. Since 1980, the GM ASEP
program at Glendale has produced scores of successful dealer
technicians, each with an Associates of Applied Science Degree in
Automotive Technology

Program Overview:

The GM ASEP program teaches exclusively on current GM products. The
curriculum is specifically focused on GM vehicle technology and students gain
GM experience as they alternate between college classes and real-world on-the-
job training at their supporting dealerships. Half of each semester (approximately
8 weeks) the ASEP student is taking intensive classes at Glendale, the other half
of the semester he or she is in the dealership, working alongside experienced
dealership technicians who serve as his or her mentors.

The ASEP instructors at Glendale are factory trained and certified by GM to meet
both ASEP and Automotive Service Excellence/National Automotive Technicians
Education Foundation (ASE/NATEF) requirements, ensuring that our training
meets or exceeds industry standards. Instructors are required to update their
skills annually and meet challenging and constantly evolving standards.

GM provides new vehicles, training components, training aids and factory special
tools for students to work with and learn from in a closely supervised and
structured environment.

Students and GM Dealers receive credit for a majority of the GM Service
Technical College curriculum upon successful graduation.

Chevrolet, GMC, Buick, and Cadillac dealers are encouraged to participate!
Beginning Fall 2005, ACDelco Total Service Support service centers are also
eligible to sponsor GM ASEP students.
