Automotive technicians are in high demand nationwide, and it’s not the profession most people imagine it to be—it’s more. A career as an automotive technician is truly challenging, and always evolving with advancements in engineering and technology that make GM vehicles cutting-edge. Our GM Dealership technicians are expertly trained specifically to handle GM vehicles—and perform repairs right, the first time.


Today, GM-certified technicians are part of an innovative movement that is looking toward the future by understanding and diagnosing advanced technology in infotainment systems, electric vehicles, and hybrid vehicles. Attending a General Motors Automotive Service Educational Program (ASEP) school is a great way to enter the field. At a GM ASEP school, you can earn an associate degree and gain valuable hands-on experience at a sponsoring dealer. With opportunities for continued training, becoming a GM World Class Technician is within your reach.


GM ASEP delivers advanced and customized automotive service training focused on engineering, technical training, problem-solving, digital prowess, and critical thinking. GM ASEP streamlines the path to becoming a highly trained automotive technician to as little as 2 years with hands-on access to the latest GM vehicle technology.

Even better, with the aid of an internship, you can benefit from working side by side with experienced technicians. Plus, most GM ASEP school tuition costs between $9,000 and $16,000 in total. With careful planning, you could graduate without the burden of a student loan. Choose from 50 GM ASEP schools across the U.S. and join the ranks of GM-certified technicians who are in demand and up-and-coming at dealerships around the country.


While no program or college can guarantee a job, many GM ASEP graduates gain employment at their sponsoring employer after graduation. Choose a career backed by its industry and ready to support you so that you can support yourself with competitive pay.


If you’re just starting out or in need of a career change, automotive technician is a great choice for those driven to succeed. GM’s vision for an all-electric future is backed by GM Dealers and their automotive technicians. Forge a career with a GM Dealer who can put you at the forefront of the future.
