Default GM Goodwrench Certs question

Well, I plan to go sometime next year, and get my GM Goodwrench certifications. My question is, do I have to get my ASE certs first, or is the Goodwrench certifications its' own thing? Or is it just a add on to the ASE certs? Help me out! Thx. If anyone knows what I have to do, send me to a site on how to get info on the GM certs.

correct. you need to have your ASE before your GM STG Cert. I will tell you (since my dad is ASE/GM STG. its ALOT of work, and not as easy as you think.

experience talking here....get the ASE done and complete. Then go to work for a GM dealer, because they will pay for your GM Training. I know when my Dad was working for the Dealer, they Paid for his CCT (Certified Chevrolet Training) and Buick Training also

yes that is very true but i think it deflects on the $150+ an hr the bmw dealers charge to service your car... and 100$ to change the oil.... well not the new ones cause they get free oil changes for as long as you own the car.. but ya get the idea...
