The program, which will welcome its first class this fall, includes co-op learning experiences at Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac dealerships where students will work hand-in-hand with experienced technicians to maintain and repair high-tech vehicles.

This program will help students become employed full-time at one of more than 4,000 GM dealerships around the country. Nearly 95 percent of students enrolled in the ASEP program are employed in the automotive field within one month of graduation.
