 Specialized Manufacturer Programs

Through the continued support of industry manufacturers and local dealers, there are two cooperative degree programs in Motor Vehicle Technology: Automotive Student Service Education Training (ASSET) with Ford Motor Company and Automotive Service Educational Program (ASEP) with General Motors (GM). Students entering either program must be sponsored by a participating Ford or GM dealer who provides supervised work experience for approximately eight weeks of each semester. The other half of the semester is spent in special classes at Delgado. Additional courses are required for both programs. You will work with a program advisor to meet these course requirements.

Working with the dealers ensures that students have the technical competency and professional level to analytically diagnose, service, and maintain the dealership products using recommended procedures, special tools and General Motors or Ford service publications. The students in Ford and GM classes will receive “factory training” through the manufacture’s online training site as well as additional hands–on training at Ford or GMs training center.
