General Motors recently donated a 2014 Chevrolet Camaro, a Chevrolet Equinox and a 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe to the GM-Automotive Service Educational Program (GM-ASEP) at Illinois Central College. The vehicles will be added to the ICC training facility on the East Peoria Campus, where students acquire the knowledge and skills to prepare for careers as GM automotive technicians.
“We are proud to support training programs that prepare the next generation of automotive technicians,” said Rick Jackson, manager for GM ASEP. “Our commitment to our customers goes well beyond building a quality product. Our dedication to excellence starts at the training level by partnering with schools in communities around the globe to share our collective passion for the automotive industry and educate, inspire and motivate the technicians of tomorrow.”
“Illinois Central College plays an important role in helping the auto industry fill a critical need — developing and retaining skilled automotive technicians,” said David Morgenstern, GM ASEP program coordinator. “Generous donations like this one from GM allows ICC to continue to deliver the highest quality education to our students.”
Since 1979, GM’s continued commitment to identify and support the GM ASEP colleges and universities has produced over 16,000 service technicians. GM ASEP incorporates advanced automotive technical training with a strong academic foundation of math, reading, and electronics, and both analytical and technical skills.
