To easy to cheat. Someone I know has someone else doing his homework. Has received SOC all but once. He couldn't even figure out what was wrong with my car & screwed up my brakes. Takes no responsibility & nlamed another. Refused Cummins cause he would fail the first test & no one would sponsor him. Will graduate anyway on 7/22/16. School is a joke. Add comment

I'm a retired vet from the army and currently attending uti. they will lie to you from the start just know that. but it's an ok start for a career if you don't know much. if you have other tech schools or a community collage in your area that offers auto or diesel programs check them out. I suggest that you take a diesel course because most of those jobs pay by the hour, not flag hours or commission I will finish my course at 57 weeks and will... Read more

Where do I start. Seemed like a good idea. Not many shops care about "the paper" you receive. Graduated 4.0 GPA 99% attendance rate. Took me 1 year to get a job paying 13.50 per hour. The career assistance is a joke. Most employers will laugh you out of their office due to the amount of garbage technicians UTI has let into the wild. It took me 6 years to achieve a wage that I could begin to pay school bills, tool bills, and living expenses. If... Read more

This is a huge waste of money and they automatically hate you if you dont want to attend by far the worst representative (danita williams) she pressures you to attend you and wont leave you alone even if you dont want to she still tries to get you to apply for 50 dollars so even if you dont attend they still got something out of you absolutely not a school id recommend Add comment

UTI is a waste of time and money. There was no "hands on training", the tests were 10 questions. The finals were 20 questions. They kept telling me the classes would get more involved later but they never did. There is no job placement after graduation. The only jobs you can get are lube tech jobs. With the money you spend at UTI, you can buy tools, a scan tool and read the manual and you would be light years ahead of any UTI graduate. 1 year... Read more

My husband is a Vet and before he even left the Army they had NTI scouts trying to enroll guys leaving the military. My husband thought this would be a great opportunity and the NTI scout said everything would be paid for with the GI other than a few thousand. LIES! They charge 2x the GI allowed amount so these poor vets only get HALF the GI bill to use because it is so expensive. You graduate with no certifications or degrees. They teach next... Read more

Schools like UTI are an utter waste of money. I attended the Avondale, Arizona campus for the auto/diesel program and went in with the intention of getting accepted into the Porsche program. While at UTI I maintained a 4.00 average, obtained 12 SOC awards, and was on the deans list 4 times. I am a United States Navy veteran and when I first spoke with a UTI recruiter I explained my desire to take the Porsche program and they assured me that my... Read more

PARENTS: SAVE YOUR MONEY! I am not a slacker. I graduated with perfect attendance. Scored student of course with the exception on 2 courses. I did well. I pushed all my instructors to get the most out of all their experience. I MAY AS WELL HAVE TAKEN A BASKET WEAVING COURSE. There is no practical application to anything I learned. UTI is to technical education is what McDonalds is to fine dining. My parents are 22,868 currently in debt, I... Read more

What a scam!!!! My nephew is going to uti and signed up for their housing. They charge $500 per person and put four guys in a two bedroom apartment. Thats $2000 month total!! Then they force them to move every couple of months for no reason. With every move they charge $100 each cleaning and if they can find some reason to charge for damage THEY DO AND WILL!!! They charge each tenant HUGE charges for basically normal wear and tear!!! I myself... Read more
