Recruiting qualified service technicians can be a challenge. Participation in GM ASEP allows for GM dealers and ACDelco PSC Shops to hand-pick future technicians. Dealers and PSC shops train students in their service department processes as students alternate between work and school.
GM Dealers, ACDelco PSC Shops, and select Key Fleets have the opportunity to sponsor a student
through the program allowing the following benefits:
A GM trained, customer focused service force comprised of students who are pursuing or have received their Associate Degree.
The opportunity to "grow their own" service technician, trained to their standards, at their dealership.
An opportunity to partner with local colleges and universities for consultation on service technician recruitment and retention.
A source for enthusiastic students and service technicians who are eager to learn.
Students and GM Dealers receive credit for a majority of the GM STC curriculum upon successful graduation. ACDelco PSC and Key Fleet sponsored students will also receive credit for ACDelco courses upon successful graduation.
Home grow technicians to the needs and expectations of your dealership.
Create a positive career image for dealer service technicians.
