BANGKOK, THAILAND – Thailand’s Ministry of Education today honored Chevrolet’s Automotive Service Educational Program (ASEP) at a vocational education award ceremony held by The Teachers Council of Thailand. Thailand’s Vocational Education Commission nominated ASEP for the award.
The ASEP automotive technician development program is one of key initiatives launched by General Motors in 2004 as part of the Chevrolet Develops Thai Education Project, which has contributed to developing 1,228 technicians nationwide.
“The dedicated service technicians who have graduated from the ASEP program are now doing great work for our customers in Chevrolet dealerships around the country,” said Khun Khanchit Chaisupho, director of Public Policy for GM Thailand, GM Southeast Asia and Chevrolet Sales Thailand, who accepted the award on behalf of the company. “We are deeply honored to receive this recognition for the program.”
For ASEP, Chevrolet Aftersales team worked closely with 10 vocational schools across the country, combining formal classroom training on model engines with hands-on work experience using professional diagnostic tools and real cars at dealership service centers.
ASEP graduates enter the workforce with the skills they need to succeed, and have an inside track to a career with Chevrolet.
“ASEP is a great example of how Chevrolet is working together with the Thai government to grow the auto manufacturing industry and develop the economy,” said Khun Khanchit. “It’s a win-win scenario for everyone involved. We are pleased to see such a recognition for a program, which is a combined effort of all the 106 dealers we have nationwide.”
