The General Motors Automotive Service Education Program (ASEP) is designed to provide the technical competence and professional level of the incoming dealership technician. The program involves academic as well as automotive lecture/ laboratory instruction focusing on General Motors (GM) products at the MassBay Automotive Technology Center. Students are also required to work at a GM dealership as part of cooperative education phase of their training. The General Motors ASEP Program is a collaborative effort between MassBay Community College and General Motors. The College retains academic and administrative responsibility for the program and is certified by the National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation Inc. (NATEF) in all eight performance areas.
Upon completion, the associate in science degree in automotive technology with a concentration in General Motors is awarded.
Competency in mathematics is a MassBay graduation requirement. Prior to graduation, students must demonstrate competency at 100-level math. This may be accomplished by an appropriate placement test score or completion of any 100-level mathematics course or higher, except mathematics courses with a MAC prefix.
