How much does UTI/MMI cost?

Looked at the website, can't seem to find the tuition cost listed anywhere. The only thing I can find there is a bunch tuition assistance information. Anyone know how much it would cost to go there?

13k a semester? You can go to real school for a lot less than that.

mine was 26k for 9 months.

i went in thinking i knew a lot, came out knowing an assload more. only problem i am having is i live in MI and there is #### for jobs around here. a few of my friends got really good jobs at Lexus and range rover dealers making FAT cash. They don't live in MI though lol.

If you do it, take it seriosuly and study like a mo fo, there were a bunch of haters at my school that said they got ripped off blah blah blah, they were the ones skipping class and not paying attention. you get out what you put into it.

Not to mention i have already gone back 3 times to use the dyno for free.

They also have all the SCT tuning software, thats a plus for me.

too much for what they offer, local trade schools offer pretty much the same training for much less.

I don't know the exact cost but my brother went to UTI in Houston. He wanted Porsche but his background prevented him from going there. He joined up with Jaguar and moved from San Antonio to W. Palm Beach. Worked as a tech for Jag and then became a tech for the Aston Martin branch where he spent a couple weeks in England for training. He left AM in Florida after about 5 years, missed his family and came back to his home town recently. He is currently a service writer for a Ford dealership as the Jag/Ferrari one around here weren't hiring at the moment. Makes commision on top of a decent salary. I'd say it was worth it what ever it cost.

I went through the Ford ASSET program....cost $2K a semester....5 semesters total. That UTI/Pennco Tech crap always seemed like a ripoff scamjob to me.



Having mechanical knowlege is a great thing, but do NOT become a mechanic. There's no money in it, and you work your ass off everyday (flat rate yay), plus come home dirtier than a pig wallowing in mud all day. There's better careers to have.

Nevermind the $25K-100K in tools that you'll accrue on your own dime, just to do your job.

University of Northwest Ohio costs $96-126 per credit hour. And they have a private drag strip, 4 dirt track cars (stock late models and UMP Modifieds) that they race on the track they own, 2 engine dynos, 2 chassis dynos, and place people on racing teams. A guy I work with's son went there and now he is Ron Capp's funny car dive man (guy who builds the bottom end and sets up the clutches)

Nothing makes you feel better about yourself quite like an episode of Hoarders

UTI in PA wanted $25k and then you could get into a manufacturer program after the first year where they paid for it. If you know nothing you could make out since most dealerships will reimburse you over a long period for school.

My community college has a similar program with factory Toyota/GM support for @$7k total but its 2 years opposed to 15 months and you have to take some regular classes to get the AS degree.

Also check your local Vo-tech. Mine has an adult night class thats 10 months and less than $2k but its not going to be as in depth as the $25k schools but you'll be $23k ahead for tools. I think as long as you get a solid foundation you can learn the rest on the job and in manufacturer training.

i am currently attending NTI (Nascar Technical Institute) same thing as UTI with one of their electives being a nascar program. My total tuition with nascar ran about $32,000.

I hear the #### talk about the school every day. If you take the time to look at these people, you will realize that they have no clue what they're talking about. You get what you put into it. I learn something new EVERYDAY. I enjoy waking up and going to class at 6:30am. It has its moments, but all in all i am having a great time.

If you have any questions feel free to PM me...

Angry It's a scam to collect Gov't assisted education

You have to understand, these private schools are scams that exist solely to funnel in state money. They have ultra-high rates, and they specialize in helping students apply for State Tuition Assistance. They don't care if you fail, their only concern is getting tuition money from the taxpayers.

So how's that different than public schools?

Don't waste your money. Go to a community college. You will learn just as much for a fraction of the cost.

I went to a community college for a year. Had a good time, learned a lot. Then i went to UTI. I honestly learned a ton. Came out with a #### load of Ford certifications(making me a lot of money now) after auto/diesel/industrial/and Ford fact, total tuition was 42k. After grants and scholarships, i am paying on 18 grand. Any questions, feel free to PM me. I always heard people talking #### on the place, but they didn't take the place seriously.
