international organization with policies and practices that support the mission and long-range goals of IAGMASEP.
Professor Decato graduated from the GM Automotive Service Education Program at LRCC in 1996 where he placed second at the SkillsUSA Contest in Kansas City, MO.

After working as a General Motors Master Technician for a number of years, he started teaching at LRCC as a part-time instructor and became the full-time Lead Instructor for the GM-ASEP program in 2001.

“As one of eight World Class GM Technicians in NH, Jamie has continued to earn a stellar reputation as a technician, and a leader in automotive education nationally,” said LRCC GM-ASEP Department Chair, Michael Parker.

“He has been awarded the GM Northeast Region Teacher of Merit Award (2006), the Commissioner’s Award of Teaching Excellence (2004-2005), and Instructor of the Year, (2004-2005). SkillsUSA is dedicated to fostering a positive work ethic, community service, and leadership in students; Professor Decato exemplifies the realization of these goals.”
