Porsche PTAP Overview

Manufacturer Paid

Porsche has a reputation for designing and developing some of the world's most sought-after sports cars. If you are serious about a career as an automotive technician for a world-class automaker, you couldn't find a better place to start than the exclusive Porsche Technology Apprenticeship Program (PTAP).

UTI is the only school in America to offer Porsche’s PTAP training, an ultra-exclusive opportunity at the company’s PCNA training centers in Atlanta, GA, and Easton, PA. PTAP classes are limited to just 12 students with one instructor — one of the best student-teacher ratios in the industry. Porsche directly supports, equips and invests in the UTI PTAP program, allowing students to receive training on all of Porsche’s world-class automobiles, tools and technologies, including the 911, Boxster, Panamera, Cayman and Cayenne.
