Ford ASSET Program - Earn While You Learn!


​That's the focus of the DMACC Ford ASSET Program (view the brochure (PDF). The partnership between Ford and Lincoln dealers, Ford Motor company, community colleges and technical schools is a two-year program that allows students to earn while they learn and gain hands-on technical experience while earning an Associate's Degree in Automotive Technology.
