While deployed in the Middle East with the National Guard, I spent a great deal of time teaching military mechanics how electrical components interacted with large diesel engines in military vehicles. When I retired from the military, I wanted a second career that would allow me to use my military training in electronics and to learn more about diesel engines.
After touring UTI, I knew that training as a technician at the school would give me the most up-to-date industry skills and would put me on the path to finding a rewarding and stable long-term career. I fell in love with diesel generation, especially the troubleshooting and critical thinking skills involved in fixing generators. The Power Gen program at UTI is very competitive, as only the top 5 percent of students are accepted, but I knew that was the program I needed to put me on the path to the career I wanted. I put everything I had into school, spending 4 to 6 hours a day in class and 12 hours a day studying.
If it didnt fit into my UTI schedule, then it didnt fit into my life.
I am currently working as a generator repair technician at Gen-Tech, a leader in the power generation industry. Thanks to my training at UTI, I can support my family and a lifestyle that allows me to enjoy the little things in life.
