This does not apply to me, But I am currently attending UTI in Lisle IL.. I have listen to several complaints that veterans who are receiving FASFA are not getting their checks. According to one VET. UTI will hold these checks for 4 weeks. Then they will issue it to the vet as long as there is no dept. Now UTI is allowed to do this but since their classes only run 3 weeks there is allways a dept... Read more

Nothing can describe the feeling of sitting down every nite across the dinner table from your parents knowing you wasted their money. My cousin got training from ford rite out of high school for free. He just bought a brand new raptor. I owe more than that truck is worth. UTI destroyed my spirit with lies, may family financial stability. And my dignity. Just don't do it. Add comment

Oh my goodness. Alright. So to confirm some of the other reviews. I know the type of people that dont like this school. Lazy, wanted an education handed to them. UTI gives you MORE information than you will need. Don't kill yourself on not remembering ALL of it. IoLs are to give you a taste for what dealership training is going to be like. I think some of these KIDS think that they will come here... Read more

I went to UTI and it was the best experience of my life, you have to want to be an Auto Mechanic all out or you won't make it, you have to be willing to work harder than you may want to at times. You never stop learning, you must buy tools and equipment, and dig in! If you work at a dealer, seniority is a must to not get warranty work all the time, I own my own business and am Happy with what... Read more

I am currently attending the Exton, PA campus for Diesel. All I can say is that this is a giant waste of my time, money, sleep, and life. I went into this school with the hopes of being a diesel mechanic, and getting some hands-on experience. Well, of my 15 classes (each being only 3 weeks long) about half of them had ANY actual mechanical hands-on 'labs'. In the 'lab' you will spend more time... Read more

I attended at uti Rancho Cucamonga. I ended up dropping out good thing it was enough time to get my money back. Where to start, first thing it's over priced they promise jobs right when you graduate which I talked to some people who graduated never able to get a job, I've talked to automotive shops they say they don't hire uti people because it's mostly book smarts and they want hands on smart....

If you have any questions call me. 936-697-7657. I graduated from the school in 2009. Worst experience of my life. I am now paying 30,000 in loans. I was top in my class and promised a Mercedes tech job. BMW and Mercedes stopped sponsoring the school. All they have left is ford FACT. You can get a job as a helper in any ford dealer without having to spend the money for basic training. I now work... Read more
