General Motors recently donated two vehicles to Illinois Central College for its automotive training program.

The 2016 Chevrolet Malibus will be used to train aspiring technicians enrolled in ICC’s General Motors Automotive Service Educational Program (GM ASEP).

“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 skilled automotive technicians,” said David Morgenstern, GM ASEP Program Coordinator. “This generous donation from GM enables us 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.
