Universal Technical Institute - This place is a joke.
Id give this place zero stars if I could.I went for a year and a half and graduated with a 3.74 GPA, was on the deans list, and student of the course.
They promise job placement which is all fine and dandy if you want to work at jiffy lube and cant afford to pay back your loans. Its a joke. You cant even work on your car for open shop. They'll let you change your brakes and that's about it.
They threw a fit when I changed my spark plugs because they will not allow you to do any kind of engine work whatsoever. Sure I was taught how to rebuild a transmission but I didn't take it off the car. You have to pick one they already have in the room that's sitting on a shelf under the table. It was a 4 speed manual transmission.
Who has has one of those anymore? Seriously do not waste your money going here. Just go to a community college that offers these courses. At least there you'll graduate with ASE certifications.
UTI doesn't make you get any ASE certs. They say you can get hired at Porsche and Mercedes but in all actuality they only take like 8 students a year and that's not from one campus. That's from all the campuses which I think is like 10 all together. So think about how many students that'd be all together and they take 8.
That's not even a 1% chance you'd get in. Not to mention half the people in my class all have jobs in different industries.
Go here if you want to pay 50K to learn how to "fix" your own car.If anyone wants to go in on a class action suit I'd be glad to be a part of it.
