Fully accredited by the National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation, the Associate of Applied Science in General Motors Automotive Service Educational Program (ASEP) provides training for students aspiring to become automotive technicians for General Motors dealerships or AC Delco independent shops. Specific General Motors training is presented to apprentice student technicians as they apply learned content to a co-op work experience. Students attend classes for half a semester and then apprentice at a GM/AC Delco sponsoring dealership the other half. Students are paid for work rendered during the co-op experience. Upon graduation, students will receive hundreds of hours of official General Motors training credits that are recorded in the corporation's training database. Graduates should be 85 to 90% trained towards meeting the certification requirements for a GM Master Technician. Graduates will also receive an Associate of Applied Science from Sinclair along with a job opportunity from the sponsoring dealer.
