Universal Technical Institute in Montrose, Colorado - Auto

I went to UTI and it was the best experience of my life, you have to want to be an Auto Mechanic all out or you won't make it, you have to be willing to work harder than you may want to at times. You never stop learning, you must buy tools and equipment, and dig in! If you work at a dealer, seniority is a must to not get warranty work all the time, I own my own business and am Happy with what UTI did for me! If I were working as a slave to some else this isn't as rewarding. I've finally gotten to the point where I can pick what jobs I want to do, You will succeed by choosing profitable jobs and avoid busy work. The first few years will be tough DON'T QUIT, the most successful mechanics are BULLDOGS never giving up. It's not for everybody you have to Love it. A good independent shop is more recommended IMO than a dealer. Lastly UTI can't teach experience you must get it youself! GREAT SCHOOL! be tough, Don't quit it will pay off. Build a reputation and

Universal Technical Institute - If you don't know anything now, you won't after.

I am currently attending the Exton, PA campus for Diesel. All I can say is that this is a giant waste of my time, money, sleep, and life. I went into this school with the hopes of being a diesel mechanic, and getting some hands-on experience. Well, of my 15 classes (each being only 3 weeks long) about half of them had ANY actual mechanical hands-on 'labs'. In the 'lab' you will spend more time filling out specs or answering questions on your thousands of papers than doing the actual work. Plus, it isn't even learning the repair, it's all specs, measurements, and other work you will never actually do in the field. When you're not in the lab, you're sitting in class (with awful chairs that kill your back) either blankly staring at the board with the teacher reading a powerpoint word-for-word, or dead asleep. The scheduling is also just a load of complete horse ***. You get randomly put in either AM or PM class. AM is from 6:30am-1245pm and PM class is from 1:50pm-8:05pm. I have been in both sessions and both suck if you're trying to get any work or sleep, especially if you commute like me. I leave my house at 4:30am to get to school on time, then work until 10:00pm. I am a living zombie. If you can, I suggest commuting though because the housing company, Collegiate Housing Service, is a joke from what I've heard. You and three other people will each pay $500-700 a month each for a 2 bedroom apartment that you all share. My last complaint is the people. Many of the students come from center city Philadelphia and there are also many from New York City. There are a lot of hood rats. That's not to say there aren't just plain *** people from everywhere though, because there are. Probably about 70% of the students have absolutely no clue what they are doing, making the teacher slow down and the class fall behind, mind you there are only 3 weeks per class, definitely not enough to learn and retain every subject. UTI is garbage, and a complete waste of your $30,000-50,000. I highly regret every going here.

Universal Technical Institute - Uti is a horrible school.

I attended at uti Rancho Cucamonga. I ended up dropping out good thing it was enough time to get my money back. Where to start, first thing it's over priced they promise jobs right when you graduate which I talked to some people who graduated never able to get a job, I've talked to automotive shops they say they don't hire uti people because it's mostly book smarts and they want hands on smart. The school gives you to much information in to short of time, it goes in one ear then out the other ear. The hands on part they rush you threw which when your working on cars u shouldn't be rushed threw it. There's to many ways to fail a class, each class you fail you have to pay 1,000 dollars to do the class over again or you can't move on. On all my test I got As but when it came to finals I forgot half the stuff they taught because it's to quick. Your better of being a apprentice at a shop then wasting money and going to this school, that's what I've been doing and I learned a lot more things then I did in school, and I'm not being rushed i get explained very well and learn a lot better!

Universal Technical Institute - Terrible school. Don't attend

If you have any questions call me. 936-697-7657. I graduated from the school in 2009. Worst experience of my life. I am now paying 30,000 in loans. I was top in my class and promised a Mercedes tech job. BMW and Mercedes stopped sponsoring the school. All they have left is ford FACT. You can get a job as a helper in any ford dealer without having to spend the money for basic training. I now work in a different field and make over 100,000 a year. UTI is a joke. Any parents want to call please feel free to contact me. If i don't answer please leave a message. I will call u back.

Universal Technical Institute - Unreliable Establishment Review

I attended UTI in Norwood, MA and I have to say that place was a flat out scam! Where the *** is all the hands on training they boast about? Don't take my word for it. Listen to other reviews, do research and then make your decision. But if you still decide to go to UTI I'm almost positive you'll regret it!

Universal Technical Institute - Tuition Fees Review

I'm a aduate or about to be. When I first came to uti I was hesitant on signing up. After filling n signing forms I was told that most of my tuition was paid for and that I owed under $5k by the time I graduate. Now that Im close to graduating I get a form saying that I now owe $22k I couldn't believe it. Yes u can get a job that might pay ur tuition but its not guaranteed. I wish they would be more upfront with the students n parents.not to much this is at the rancho campus hands on work n lots of paperwork.

Universal Technical Institute in Charlotte, North Carolina - Fast "education"

Getting a full tour of the Institute by Justin Durham, first off there's the biggest problem. He is nothing more than a promoter of the school. He makes everything seem so perfect, but I beg to differ. He talks so highly about the school, and if you mention that you are considering to attend another school that's not UTI, he gets this look on his face, and actually down talks to school. And he wants you to go to the school so bad he doesn't know when to stop calling and sending emails. A little weird. I know people who went to this school, and still don't have jobs. I know people who work with kids from UTI and kids that came from CPCC. And you'll never guess what kids do better, the CPCC kids. Obvious problem there. I walk into the place, and I'm so impressed. It's nice, the programs they have look promising. The only problem with that is, you go through it in a matter of seconds, and then you're on to the next. You go through classes faster than you can blink. I know the whole institute is about going through the program quickly to get you out there working, but they cram so much so fast, kind of hard to remember some stuff. Not saying it's hard, but still. And another thing is, the whole job thing. My friend was going to get placed 2 and half hours away from home. And if he didn't take that job he most likely wouldn't have gotten another one. I just don't believe this school is all cracked up as they make it seem. It's too expensive and a little too good to be true. I wouldn't say I don't recommend it, but then again, there's plenty of reasons why I decided not to join the school. Looks nice and promising from the inside, but once you walk out, you're screwed.
