Choosing to invest in your education is a decision you can make today that can help lead to a brighter future. Here are a few reasons to choose UTI.

LEARN IN A HANDS-ON ENVIRONMENT

 

UTI is for the hands-on learner. From day one, you’ll be working on projects as you prepare for an exciting career as a technician. Students have the opportunity to practice what they learn in a lab environment that simulates what they can experience in the field, working with industry tools and technology.

FOCUSED & ACCELERATED LEARNING

With UTI, you can start your journey to prepare for a career without waiting for next semester, with programs starting every 3-6 weeks. Our curriculum is designed to equip students with the knowledge and real-world experience they need to pursue careers as soon as they graduate.


We focus on what the industry says matters most. Whether it’s automotive, diesel, motorcycle, marine, welding technology, collision repair or CNC machining, our programs teach the foundational skills employers look for when hiring their technicians. Some of our programs even take less than a year to complete.

MENTORS, NOT JUST INSTRUCTORS

Mentorship plays an important role in all of our programs at UTI. Students benefit by learning from professionals who are passionate, experienced, and available to provide support and guidance every step of the way.
