UTI’s programs teach fundamental, high-demand skills that can benefit our graduates who enter the growing workforce.1
Whether you’re interested in the automotive, diesel, motorcycle, marine, welding technology, collision repair or CNC machining industries, you can gain specialized skills that employers need. Some of our programs can even prepare you to become a technician in less than a year.
Learning at UTI doesn’t take place in a typical classroom. The facilities in our campus locations nationwide provide students with opportunities to apply the concepts they’ve learned using the same tools and technologies found in the field.
Students split their time between a classroom and lab environment. Time spent in the classroom allows instructors to set a baseline understanding of concepts, parts, tools and processes. The classrooms, however, aren’t ordinary. They’re integrated with tools and technology relevant to the course topic.
Once students have mastered concepts in the classroom environment, the lab is where the real magic happens. This is where students receive hands-on training and experience scenarios similar to what they might encounter in a dealership or local shop. Manufacturers work with us to provide vehicles so students can train with late models found on the road and in the water.
Class sizes are kept small, which allows students to receive more attention from their instructors than they might get elsewhere. Our instructors act as mentors to our students — encouraging them to ask questions, explore opportunities, work hard and push themselves to learn new skills.
Our curriculum was designed for those who learn best by doing. As a student at UTI, you’ll never have to worry about flipping aimlessly through a textbook. Instead, you’ll be learning from engaging instructors and working with the same tools and equipment used by technicians.
In addition to teaching the mechanics, our programs emphasize professional development. Students are held to a high standard, as attendance is required and they are expected to follow a dress code. A good work ethic also is encouraged. This focus on professional
development is what prepares our students for the field and helps them stand out when applying for jobs.
Today’s employers look for technicians who understand the specifics of their technologies. This is why we team with leading manufacturers to create specialized programs that focus on their vehicles, diagnostics and performance specs. After completing your core program, you can add these Manufacturer-Specific Advanced Training (MSAT) programs to help you gain a competitive edge.11
