EMPLOYMENT RATES

The United States Bureau of Labor Statistics states: Job prospects should be good for those with formal training in automotive, diesel, motorcycle, and marine fields of study.¹ Individual employability depends on many personal credentials and economic factors and cannot be guaranteed by any individual or institution. Work experience, industry certifications, the location of the employer and their compensation programs, all affect wages. In May 2011, the U.S. Department of Labor published estimates for the hourly earnings of the middle 50% of skilled technicians ranging from $12.10 to $23.58 per hour. The Department also reported that top industry employees earn between $24.27 - $30.17 per hour. Our hardest-working graduates earn even more, opening their own shops, and advancing in careers with UTI’s industry-leading partners. Regardless of wage, UTI is committed to providing employment guidance resources to assist motivated, job-seeking students upon graduation and throughout their career.²
