Universal Technical Institute - Avondale Reviews
Your UTI experience will be what you make of it. Personally I have had a very pleasant experience with UTI. I would definitely recommend UTI to friends and family. Show up, follow the rules, ask questions, and participate and you'll excel. It is especially nice having a planned schedule of classes so that you're not competing for classes required for your graduation as I have had many friends attending classic colleges complain about. UTI is incredibly Vet friendly too.
UTI offers something that no other automotive school offers: direct connections to car companies. By taking MSATs or student-paid electives, one can expect to have a job offering by that manufacturer by the time they graduate (given that they show some effort). In addition, there are often job fairs for jobs to pay the bills in school right now and for the future as well. The employment services office at my school is excellent. They really care that you can get a job to pay the bills as soon as possible, and job leads are accessible at any time via computer.
There's a reason why UTI is considered by many to be the "Harvard of automotive schools". The classes are great, people learn a lot. The instructors are very knowledgeable and have worked in their field for quite some time. Classes are not too large and do not affect the quality of learning that much. As for course variety: there are many different routes one can take. If one plans to attend UTI, it is highly recommended to take an manufacturer specific course.
