Hands-On Labs Opening at All Campuses

The health and well-being of our students, employees and campus communities is our top priority. At the same time we're committed to delivering a valuable education.

We're pleased to announce that our students are now able to continue their hands-on education in our labs at all UTI and MMI campuses:

Universal Technical Institute

Motorcycle Mechanics Institute

Marine Mechanics Institute

Hands-On Labs Will Align with CDC Guidance

The hands-on training in our labs is structured to follow CDC, state, and local guidelines, including:

  • Students are given assigned times and doors to arrive at and leave campus.
  • Students will be given a face covering that must be worn while on campus. If they prefer to wear their own face covering it must meet CDC guidelines.
  • We have reduced class sizes to follow CDC, state and local guidelines. 
  • Workstations have been staged to maintain social distancing. 
  • As much as possible, students will will not share equipment and tools. 
  • Physical distancing and good hygiene (hand washing, covering coughs, etc.)
  • Breaks will be taken individually to comply with social distancing requirements.  
  • Workstations and tools will be disinfected between sessions. 

Online Instructor Led-Courses Continue  

We'll continue to pair hands-on training in the lab with online instructor-led lectures and demonstrations that all of our active students are currently accessing.

Striving to Get All Students Back Into the Hands-On Labs

We have worked with local and state governments to follow local protocols and requirements to reopen all of our labs. In the meantime, please continue to follow CDC recommendations on staying well.

  • Wash your hands and use a hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your face.
  • Catch coughs or sneezes with a tissue and throw the tissue into the trash.
  • Stay away from people who are sick.
  • Practice social distancing and avoid large crowds.
  • Regularly clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces and objects at work and at home.
  • If you are sick or think you might be sick, don’t leave your home.

We'll continue to post UTI updates on this page. If you have questions that are not answered on our COVID-19 FAQ page, please email our Student Services team at

Wishing you and your families good health,
