The General Motors’ Automotive Service Educational Program (ASEP) prepares students as state-of-the-art technicians for GM dealerships. A new generation of “high tech” automotive technology demands a new generation of automotive service technicians. Students are trained on current General Motors products and components. The latest diagnostic and servicing procedures and equipment are also used. Students are able to complete the PA State Safety Inspector and Emissions Inspector certifications. In addition, courses in oral and written communications, as well as in the social and natural/physical science areas, help to supplement their studies by providing students with critical and creative thinking skills that may enhance their career opportunities. This program is accredited by the National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation (NATEF) in the eight categories of automotive repair by the Automotive Service Excellence/National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation (ASE/NATEF). The complete program is only available at the Harrisburg Campus.
