BE SMART THIS SUMMER WITHOUT SACRIFICING THE FUN

Are you a high school junior looking for something to do this summer? It’s not too early to start preparing for a career while you learn in-demand, real-world skills used in the transportation industry. Make the most of your summer and enroll in this no-cost program.

WHAT TO EXPECT

The skills you learn in our Summer Ignite Program can kickstart your UTI education.

UTI’s Summer Ignite Program courses will train high school juniors in automotive, diesel, motorcycle and collision repair mechanical technology. The skills taught are the same as those in our full-tuition program courses—but offered here at no cost to you.33

Students who decide to attend UTI after graduation from high school can get credit toward their UTI education after successfully completing the Summer Ignite Program.32

COURSE TOPICS WILL INCLUDE:

  • How vehicles are designed and manufactured
  • Vehicle physics and safety
  • How gasoline and diesel engines work
  • Computer management and control systems
  • Fundamental diagnostic, maintenance and repair skills
  • Information on industry career opportunities for qualified technicians

TECHNICIANS ARE IN DEMAND

The U.S. Department of Labor projects that by the year 2026 there will be more than 1.2 million job openings in the automotive, diesel and collision repair industries. To help reach that total, the transportation industry will have to fill more than 120,000 technician job openings annually on average.12

THE SAME COURSES AT NO COST

UTI’s Summer Ignite Program will be a series of three-week courses based on the same curriculum offered in the programs that full-time UTI students complete.
