Illinois Central College Automotive Program Receives Vehicle Donation from General Motors
General Motors recently donated five new Chevrolet and GMC trucks to the GM-Automotive Service Educational Program (GM ASEP) at Illinois Central College to be used by students to prepare for careers as GM automotive technicians.
GM ASEP at ICC is a unique partnership between General Motors and Illinois Central College designed to train tomorrow’s automotive technicians for the demanding job of servicing today’s high-tech vehicles.
“Illinois Central College plays an important role in helping the auto industry fill a critical need in developing and retaining skilled automotive technicians. This generous donation from GM enables us to deliver the highest quality education to our students,” said Assistant Professor and Program Coordinator Trevor Imm.
While ICC received five new vehicles, GM donated a total of 32 to be dispersed between seven colleges in the region. ICC proudly served as the central pick-up and distribution location for the other colleges.
Since 1979, GM’s continued commitment to identify and support the GM ASEP colleges and universities has produced over 18,000 service technicians. GM ASEP incorporates advanced automotive technical training with a strong academic foundation of math, reading, and electronics, increasing both analytical and technical skills.
