Responding to the need for qualified service technicians, the GM Automotive Service Educational Program (ASEP) allows GM dealerships and ACDelco TSS ISCs to participate in programs that bring students together with their dealerships and service centers. GM ASEP incorporates advanced automotive technical training with a strong academic foundation of math, reading, and electronics, in both analytical and technical skills. Students earn an Associate Degree while working and learning on the job, resulting in a solid education combined with invaluable work experience.
GM ASEP is a strategic alliance between students, GM, GM dealers, ACDelco TSS service centers and over 80 carefully selected colleges and universities in North America. Since 1979, General Motors' continued commitment to identify and support GM ASEP colleges and universities has produced over 13,000 graduate service technicians. The College of Southern Idaho joined in General Motors’ mission in 1982 and has provided training to several hundred students and technicians since then:
You can become a technician who is…
You will be entering a career field with one of the fastest growing wages in America and earning potential limited only by your desire and willingness to work.
Earn while you learn at your sponsoring work site. It is possible to earn enough money during on-the-job training to completely offset the cost of your education.
The GM ASEP program at CSI teaches exclusively on current GM products. These programs allow students to alternate between attending college and working at a sponsoring GM dealership or ACDelco TSS service center for approximately two years.
Our goal is to provide the students with the knowledge and training required by an entry level technician to work on modern vehicles and provide life long learning skills that will be required as an automotive technician.

The College of Southern Idaho offers the only ASEP program for the Idaho, Montana and Wyoming area. We are a comprehensive community college located at 315 Falls Avenue in Twin Falls, Idaho. We have maintained a reputation of offering high quality technical and academic educational opportunities to all who wish to attend.
There are a limited number of spaces (16) available in the ASEP program and students are selected on the basis of admissions test scores and the candidate’s ability to secure a GM sponsor. Due to the co-op schedule and 8-week blocks, all necessary academic classes for the associate degree are scheduled accordingly during the two-year program. It is important that interested students and dealers sign up to participate in the program today.
