General Motors-Automotive Service Educational Program
The General Motors-Automotive Service Educational Program (GM-ASEP) is a two-year track leading to an Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree in Automotive Technology. GM-ASEP combines the technical training facility at Seminole State with regional General Motors dealers in a cooperative effort to produce highly qualified and trained technicians.
Students alternate between classroom/lab courses on campus and part-time work experience in local dealerships. Training covers the latest developments of GM technology, including engines, fuel management, electronics, transmission/transaxles, brake systems and air conditioning. Advanced and professional courses provide necessary skills in mathematics, reasoning and communication.
General Motors selected Seminole State as a regional GM-ASEP site in 1998. The national success of GM-ASEP is documented by the number of qualified technicians who have graduated and are now successful in the work force.
ASEP-Training Tomorrow's Technicians Today!
- Training by instructors who are ASE-certified master technicians
- Cooperative work experience at a sponsoring GM dealership or AC Delco repair facility
- Hands-on training with the latest GM vehicles and equipment
Seminole State has won national recognition for the quality of its automotive programs. In 2006, GM-ASEP at Seminole State was named the top manufacturer-affiliated postsecondary automotive program in the nation by the Automotive Industry Planning Council (AIPC).
Students who wish to participate in Seminole State's GM-ASEP program must be academically qualified and have a GM dealership sponsor. If needed, students can receive assistance in locating an employer. It is the cooperative effort between the College and dealership that provides students with on-campus and on-the-job training.
