I will be honest, I am not a great student. Average C & B in my classes throughout high school.

I felt that going to a 4 year college straight out of high school was too much for me to handle. Especially since a classic classroom isn't what I call motivating. But I have worked on cars with my dad since I was little, now don't think this means I know a lot about cars. Just enough to know how to change tires, oil, but that's about it.

I found out about UTI and it seems like this is a point in my life where I can finally do something good for my life, but still am debating about going forward with the steps to attend UTI. So if anyone can help me out with info or even advice PLEASE do so.

Product or Service Mentioned: Universal Technical Institute Program.

Do NOT go to UTI unless you have never touched a tool. My son's high school taught him more than this school did.

Collegiate Hosing is a joke. You will be screwed .


I've worked for dealerships for more than 25 years and I can tell you first hand that UTI grads that have come through my shop are not looked upon with any respect. None of the grads I've worked with have a clue as to what they are doing.

Save yourself the money and get a job at a dealer you'd like to ultimately be a technician at. Any position in the service department will do, just make sure you talk with the service manager and let him know your intentions.

They'll probably give you a lube position and let you work your way up from there if they see some promise in you. Taking classes at a community college while working at the dealership will get you where you want to be much quicker and cheaper in my opinion.

I just finished my Auto courses and am on my T-Ten (Toyota) Im older then the avg. student (32) out of the Army and if it wasn't paid for by the VA I would never have gone this way..

even if you put all you had in to it the complicated things will be forgotten by the time you do it at a shop one year later if your lucky...

starting at the shop would be much more beneficial...
