Training Philosophy Overview

At UTI, our mission is to prepare technicians for the careers of tomorrow. This industry is continuously evolving, which is why our training focuses on equipping students with skills that align with both current and future employer demands.5

Our curriculum is created in conjunction with leading manufacturers, many of whom consider our graduates when hiring. This gives students access to industry-preferred tools and technology while they train, and it also gives them the opportunity to connect with top employers.

Throughout their training, students have the support of passionate, caring instructors who incorporate a real-world element into the classroom. UTI instructors are much more than just teachers—they’re mentors who are committed to the success of their students while they train and beyond.

Each one of UTI’s programs incorporates digital and hands-on instruction. The role of a modern-day technician looks much different than before—so it’s important for our graduates to possess the hands-on skills and technical knowledge needed to succeed in the field.5

Hands-On Labs

Hands-on learning is a core component of training at UTI. Our students learn best by doing, and they have the opportunity to do so in our state-of-the-industry labs at each campus.

Our labs are equipped with some of the latest tools and technology, so students are able to train on the very equipment used by technicians in the field today. This allows them to develop and refine their skills as well as gain confidence in their abilities, making the transition to a career a seamless process.

Whether it’s putting a NASCAR racing engine on the dyno, troubleshooting a Mercury Marine outboard engine or learning to TIG weld using equipment from Lincoln Electric, our students gain valuable hands-on experience they can take with them as they pursue careers in their chosen field.

Preparing for Lifelong Learning

In addition to hands-on skills, today’s technicians must have strong computer skills in order to keep up with the latest technological updates impacting the industry. This is why technology is integrated into each program.

Students at UTI utilize online tools like Blackboard Ultra throughout the course of their training. This not only allows them to become familiar with navigating a digital platform, but it provides the flexibility to access their coursework at any time. It also gives them the opportunity to receive one-on-one instruction by reaching out to their instructors online.

Additionally, being able to complete digital training sets the stage for lifelong learning. As technicians go into the industry, they will be required to complete ongoing career training, much of which is done online. Being familiar with this type of learning gives graduates an advantage when it comes time to advance their career by acquiring additional knowledge.

Now more than ever, employers are looking for candidates with a wide range of skills. This training model shapes students into well-rounded technicians and gives them a competitive advantage when applying for jobs.

Overall, UTI’s innovative blend of online and hands-on training is designed to prepare tomorrow’s technician, today!
