Fox Valley Technical College received a new addition to its Automotive-related training programs thanks to the commitment of General Motors. The college was awarded a 2011 Cadillac DTS from GM for its GM ASEP program. The retail value of the vehicle is around $55,000.
“We are proud to support training programs which prepare the next generation of GM technicians” states Brad Busboom, GM ASEP and AYES program manager. “Our commitment to customers goes well beyond building a quality product, and our dedication to excellence starts at the training level.”
The vehicle is undergoing body work by students in FVTC’s Vehicle Refinishing and Repair Technology program before it is implemented into the mechanical training environment. “Most vehicle donations we receive have some sort of minor damage, and that fits in well with hands-on learning opportunities for our students,” says Andy Rinke, a World Class GM certified instructor at FVTC. Rinke added that FVTC has a longstanding partnership with GM, and that donations like this are a win-win for the company, the students, and the community.
