Overview - 2019/2020

Today’s automobiles are not made of just steel and rubber. They’re technological marvels that rely on computers to make sure all of the components and systems are running smoothly and properly. They also need highly trained mechanics with specialized skills to keep them safe and on the road.

If you’re excited by the opportunity to learn cutting-edge General Motors (GM) vehicle repair techniques for a dynamic career, the two-year Automotive Service Technician (General Motors Automotive Service Educational Program) [Apprenticeship] program will help drive your dreams forward.

You’ll learn how to diagnose, repair and maintain GM cars and trucks from bumper to bumper. Better yet, because of the apprenticeship component of the program, you’ll earn real cash while refining your skills working at a sponsoring GM dealership. It’s as close to the real deal as you can get.

If your interests in fixing vehicles are diverse and you’re not sure if this is the right program for you, book a tour today and find out where your career dreams can take you.
