Automotive Technology Ford Motor Company Automotive Student Service Educational Training (ASSET)
The Automotive Student Service Educational Training Program (ASSET) is a two year program leading to an Associate in Applied Science Degree in Automotive Technology. It is a joint effort of three organizations: Ford Motor Company, Ford and Lincoln-Mercury Dealers, and New Mexico Junior College. Its purpose is to provide technical competency and professional abilities for students desiring a professional career as dealership technicians. This program prepares students to analytically diagnose, service and maintain Ford automotive products using recommended procedures, special tools, and Ford Service Publications. Students are trained using the latest Ford vehicles, components, and educational materials available; students are better equipped to advance in position after additional experience is achieved in the dealership. Throughout the two (2) year program, the student alternates between classroom and laboratory instruction at the college and cooperative work experience in a sponsoring Ford or Lincoln-Mercury dealership. Due to significant demands of this program, students are required to meet specific entry-level requirements.
