GRAND BLANC, Mich. – ACDelco – the exclusive Original Equipment parts brand for Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac, as well as a provider of premium aftermarket parts for most other makes and models – recognizes the General Motors Automotive Service Educational Program (ASEP) students at Fox Valley Technical College, Appleton, Wisconsin, as the latest winners of the ACDelco GM ASEP School Challenge.

“The enthusiasm of the students at Fox Valley Technical College is infectious, and we hope they inspire many more current and prospective students to pursue careers in automotive service,” said Abby Szafranski, digital and social media manager, ACDelco.

The contest challenged GM ASEP students across the U.S. to produce creative social media content to inspire other students to consider careers as automotive technicians. The winning school receives prizes including ACDelco gear and automotive tools.

GM ASEP is a joint effort between GM, GM dealers, ACDelco Professional Service Center (PSC) program members, and select colleges across the U.S. The two-year GM ASEP curriculum combines advanced technical training, academic coursework and real-world internship experience at participating GM dealerships or independent ACDelco PSC shops. Graduates will complement their technical know-how with an associate’s degree in applied science or similar fields.

Increasingly advanced vehicle systems and an industry shortage of qualified technicians are creating career opportunities for the students. The U.S. Bureau of Labor and Statistics (BLS) predicts the auto care industry will need to hire more than 30,000 technicians by 2024.

ACDelco GM ASEP Social Media Challenge

The next ACDelco GM ASEP School Challenge is already underway, and social media posts now through July 31 will be eligible to win the next ACDelco prize package.
