My son went to UTI in Chicago from 2011-2012, what a waste of money! And when you graduate they announce the kids as "certified auto mechanics"!

The courses changed every 3 weeks, certainly not enough time to learn anything! When he graduated and came to work at our auto repair shop, he knew nothing other than what he knew before he left! My husband could of taught him everything he learned for free instead of wasting $30G!! We contacted the sales rep about a partial refund, no luck!

Please attend a technical college instead, a lot more knowledge!!!! And not a waste of your hard earned money :(

When I was in high school, my guidance counselor mentioned UTI to me. When I was looking at getting into the automotive field and researching other schools, they just didn’t compare to UTI. I ultimately chose UTI for its reputation and curriculum. The instructors were...

Grandson's new roommate (4th to move in) first comment to my grandson was "can I smoke in here?", second was "do you now of any dealers in the complex"?. Grandson response and fellow roommate was no to both questions.

Next morning they found beer in the fridge and dumped it down the drain and left a note "NO TOLERANCE". Now the trouble rmmt has labeled him a trouble maker. Trouble child left note on fridge that they are not to dump his beer etc. Grandson went to housing and they met with all rmmts and decided to let it ride for now and keep an eye out for the beer and call them don't dump it!!!!

WHAT HAPPENED TO THE ZERO TOLERANCE!!??? How about kicking the prblm to the curb. He just wants to party. Send him back to the Bronx.

My grandson just wants and education and shouldn't have to deal with this .

Would find his own housing if I had known this is how UTI works. What a waste of ORIENTATION (sheriff and administrator you are a joke).

Not as described/ advertised

I am a student who has completed the auto program. I did make the mistake of signing up for Ford FACT.

I tried to drop the program and financial aid told me in order to drop the $8500 program it would cost me $1260. I work at a toyota dealership so ford is useless. I had to start the program and what a waste. All you do is teach yourself on a computer.

They do not tell you that you have to have a computer at home because most of your work will be done at home teaching yourself. There is another class across the lab from us and no one has yet to touch a car.

The basic programs are good but do not take an elective (MSAT) unless the manufacturer is paying for it and guarantees you employement. Other than that the elective are an extreme waste of time and money.

After high school I considered going to Bozeman University in Montana to get a business degree. The more I thought about it, though, what I really wanted to do was get my hands dirty and wrench on things versus sitting behind a desk. I had heard a lot of good things...
