Employment Rates and Wages

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) forecasts job prospects should be very good for those with formal training in the automotive, diesel, motorcycle, and marine fields of study.1 Individual employability depends on many personal and economic factors. Work experience, industry certifications, the location of the employer and its compensation programs — all affect wages. In May 2014, BLS published annual wage estimates for entry-level technicians that ranged from $21,270 to $28,130.2 For entry-level technicians in Massachusetts as of May 2013, annual wages ranged from $23,870 to $37,430.3 Our hard-working graduates have had opportunities to earn more as they advanced in their careers, working for UTI's industry-leading partners and opening their own shops.4 While UTI cannot guarantee employment or salary, it is committed to providing employment guidance resources to assist motivated, job-seeking students upon and after graduation.
