To address growing workforce demand for skilled technicians, the Universal Technical Institute (UTI) is bringing back Ignite, a free summer program designed to give high school juniors a firsthand look at careers in the transportation industry. Participating students will receive hands-on technical training and the opportunity to earn credit toward a UTI program. The program will be offered at each of UTI’s campuses nationwide.
During the three-week program, participants will be able to sample the automotive, diesel, collision repair and motorcycle training that full-time UTI students take. Students also will explore career opportunities in the transportation field, as well as learn about the need and earning potential for trained technicians from UTI graduates and local employers.
UTI launched the Ignite program nationwide last summer following a pilot program at campuses in Avondale, AZ; Houston; and Orlando in 2017. For more information, visit uti.edu/ignite.
