Dealer Specific Automotive Technology (GM-ASEP) (223A)
in Science or Associate in Applied Science
The General Motors Automotive Service Educational Program (GM-ASEP) is a partnership involving educational institutions, national and local businesses, students, government and community officials, as well as local dealerships throughout Northeast Florida.
This two-year Associate Degree program was designed by General Motors, Florida Community College and local businesses to upgrade the technical competence and professional level of the incoming dealership technician. The program combines classroom lecture with laboratory sessions on up-to-date General Motors products, as well as hands-on work experience as an intern at a GM, Saturn, or Saab dealership over the two-year course of the program. Completion of the general education courses in the program adds a balance of qualities that are vital to working in todays service industry, and prepares the students for life-long learning.
NOTE: Students have two degree alternatives in this program: The associate in science (A.S.) and the associate in applied science (A.A.S.). If you intend to pursue further education at the university level, you should enroll in the A.S. option. If you intend to go directly to work after completing your associates degree, consider the A.A.S. While the A.A.S. will not provide you with the transfer benefits of the A.S., the A.A.S. will provide you with the skills required to begin working in the field immediately upon graduation. If you are unsure of which option is best for you, please see an advisor for further counseling.
