Owens, GM partnership continues

General Motors, one of the world’s largest automotive manufacturers, recently added a 2014 GMC Yukon to
the 11 other vehicles donated since the fall of 2012 to Owens Community College for its automotive
training program.
The donated vehicles will be used to train aspiring technicians enrolled in GM’s Automotive Service
Educational Program.
The two-year associate degree program is designed to provide students with the skills and knowledge to
diagnose, correct, and repair electrical, fuel, emissions, and mechanical problems found in today’s
modern automobiles.
Owens students are taught by General Motors certified instructors and all lab/lecture instruction is
specific to General Motors products.
As part of the academic curriculum, students rotate between working full- time at a General Motors
dealership and taking Owens classes full-time in eight-week increments.
Scholarships are also available for prospective students interested in the program.
