$30K to learn things I already knew. But hey, their recruiters make a LOT of money. So maybe that should have been the job I went for upon graduating. The experience of being in Cali was nice, minus the 800/month for a 400 sq ft studio. But UTI did hook us up with Pit passes for the Pomona NHRA Winternational and the Allstate 500. I met a lot of really cool people and had some wonderful... Read more

My husband attended UTI four years ago. Number one THEY DID NOT provide any type of externship/internship. All they provided was a list of job openings. Most were all to be a lube and oil person. Also they were only allowed to work on cars (other than the little classroom projects) ONCE a month (the first Saturday from 8:00-1:00 pm.) Heck, even a JC allows you to bring in your own car and tinker... Read more

The instructors are unprofessional. They bring their problems at home to work. Just because you are provided with an education does not mean you are going to graduate with the adequate skills to work. The reality is you need to work in a shop next to techs that have been working on cars for a long time. I was a mechanic for total of 6 years, Infiniti for about 2. (No longer work on cars.. Moved...

I dint know anything about cars I was only driving for a year bu that time. I got at least an 80% in every class more like 90% except for like auto trans and the big diesel classes. so by the time I was done I seriously though I knew it all. I got my... Read more

Join MMI, waste 1.5 to 2.5 years at technical college, bounce from dead beat job to unappreciated workforce jobs while you're struggling financially through school, get graded on attendance and wonder how some people even get to walk across the stage because they've slept or barely skated through classes. Just like any other college, there's dopers, slackers, and the stinky kids, and the rare... Read more

I graduated a "straight A student with perfect attendance on 06/10/2010. My first job started at $10.00/hour. Worked my butt off outside in the summer heat and winter cold and snow for 9 months. Only to be offered a 5% commission base raise (same as offered to a part time worker who was an auto mechanic). Moved back home and got a job in Pawleys Island, SC in the summer. I was laid off after two... Read more

Back in 1993 I fell victim to a magazine ad. I was into British bikes and often the instructors would ask me basic questions any person would know if they knew anything about a major player in the motorcycle industry. I finished the program and because I did not finish a program for Suzuki- I owed MMI $106 dollars. I spent my GI bill paying these lowlifes money from my 12 years I spent in the... Read more
