About Us

Universal Technical Institute (UTI) is a nationwide provider of technical training programs for students seeking careers as automotive, diesel, collision repair, motorcycle and marine technicians. In fact, it has graduated more than 190,000 technicians during its 50 years in business.

UTI offers six entry-level technician training programs as well as manufacturer-specific training featuring more than 30 brands. Many of the manufacturer-supported programs are not available at any other school. The auto, diesel and collision repair technician training programs are accredited by the National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation (NATEF), and graduates are well prepared to complete the ASE certification examinations. The branded programs are based on the manufacturers' training programs.

All UTI courses are taught by instructors with years of experience working in their areas of expertise and all have a genuine interest in helping students succeed.

Student Testimonials

'What I liked most about UTI were the opportunities I had as well as the MSAT programs that were available to me. The hands-on program at UTI taught me the skills to become a technician in the real world because I was able to actually put what I was learning into practice.'

-Jake De St. Hubert, UTI Graduate

'Going into UTI, I knew my skills were modest but UTI gave me the knowledge I needed to work at a dealership. I thought the instructors were good, engaging and helped me with the course work.'

-Keaton Kramer, UTI Graduate

'I felt like I had a mechanical mind but not the fundamental knowledge of motorcycles, so I liked that the Motorcycle Mechanics Institute program was in-depth and focused. The lab work was important to me as I learn best in a hands-on environment. Motorcycle Mechanics Institute gave me the practical application on the bikes I would work on in the industry.'
