Automotive Service Educational Program (GM ASEP) - Associate in Applied Science


Automotive Service Educational Program (GM ASEP) - Associate in Applied Science

Program Code: AAS.60842

The GM Automotive Service Educational Program (ASEP) is an associate degree automotive program designed to upgrade your technical competence and professional level to an incoming dealership technician. At Delta College, the program requires 111 weeks of training to complete. Approximately 60 of those weeks are spent on the Delta College campus. The remainder of the time spent in this two-year period is in a General Motors dealership or an ACDelco Professional Service Center (PSC) repair facility. Each specialized subject is dealt with in the classroom and laboratory on campus and is immediately followed by related work experience in the dealership/PSC. This rotation system continues until the program is completed. This is a suggested enrollment sequence for full time students. It is suggested that part time students see an advisor for scheduling assistance. NOTE: There is a special application for this program and each student is required to be sponsored by a General Motors dealership or an ACDelco repair facility. For more information, please contact ASEP Coordinator: (989) 686-9351
