General Motors Corporation’s Automotive Service
Educational Program, ASEP, is a two-year apprenticeship program designed to prepare individuals to work as an automotive service technician at a General Motors dealership. The Dealership Sponsored Technician Associate of Applied Science degree curriculum was designed by the General Motors Corporation and Brookhaven College.
ASEP students attend intensive 10-week sessions of classroom lecture and laboratory exercises at Brookhaven College, followed by a 10-week cooperative work experience at the student’s sponsoring General Motors dealership. This process allows the student to apply recent classroom activities in a professional dealership environment. The total program lasts about 90 weeks, with approximately 50 weeks spent at Brookhaven College and 40 weeks at the student’s sponsoring dealership.
