I was 18 when I decided to attend the auto program at the Norwood campus.I tried to relocate but my car died.

So took my losses and spent my entire savings within the first three weeks. Moved back home got a new set of wheels. Now beginning to realize that I was not getting a break because it would cost more and more money. And my comUte was almost two hours one way.

So I got up at 4am and got hone at 230pm at work for 4pm and until 11 or 12 or 2am depending on the night. So let's say driving was not only unsafe but half the time I wasn't coherent enough to stay in the lines. Every class I took was easy. Like elementary easy.

Yeah they showed you how things worked and go together. The science behind the workings of electricity and the trivial pursuit of understanding trouble codes. They think they can replace experience. The only thing they have experience in is fooling young people into thinking that the education they need is at the car school where you'll become desirable to the big money jobs and you will be if you actually have experience with cars because you've aactually fixed them.

I'll say it again because you've actually fixed them.no-one cares if you went to school no-one. Especially if you went to the car school where you don't fix anything.

Not once did I experience a realistic "fix it scenario.My tipif you want to waste your parents money if they have any to spend on your spoiled ***

Hello, I am sorry to hear you have had an unsatisfactory experience with UTI.We know that UTI isn't for everyone; however, with over 30 manufacturer relationships, over 160,000 graduates over 45 years and 4 out of 5 graduates finding employment within their field of study within 1 year of graduation, we believe that UTI is one of the best training options around.

Also, UTI maintains a curriculum development department to design and modify our programs according to industry needs. Working closely with industry advisory boards, curriculum development professionals determine the skills needed by technicians in today's job market and develop curriculum that will convey that knowledge. With that being said, it is unsettling to hear of your disappointment in the curriculum and program and I would welcome for you to contact me at any time so I can hear more of your feedback.

Would you mind sending over your name, Student ID# and contact information to difry@uti.edu?I would be happy to look into your experience and forward your feedback to the appropriate person(s.) Thank you!

I have not gone to the school.

I am just researching it, because I was not convinced by the snake of a recruiter who came to his house. There seems to be a certain mood in every statement by UTI. It seems like they dont want you to really know anything at all.

I am not saying this a good or bad school, but I am skeptical.

Your school steals opportunity from young people. You should work for someone else
