PHOENIX — Universal Technical Institute (UTI), a national provider of technical education training, has announced a long-term agreement to expand program offerings at its Orlando, Fla., campus to include automotive training.
Universal Technical Institute is a leading provider of technical education training for students seeking careers as professional automotive, diesel, collision repair, motorcycle and marine technicians. The company offers undergraduate degree, diploma and certificate programs at seven campuses across the U.S., and manufacturer-sponsored advanced programs at 22 dedicated training centers. Through its campus-based school system, Universal Technical Institute, Inc. offers specialized technical education programs under the banner of several well- known brands, UTI, Motorcycle Mechanics Institute and Marine Mechanics Institute (MMI) and NASCAR Technical Institute (NTI).
The new Orlando automotive program, expected to begin in the fall, will be offered in a new 60,000-square-foot facility near the company’s existing campus location. The initial expansion will accommodate approximately 500 students, and UTI said it expects to increase total capacity of the Orlando campus to approximately 2,400 students over the next few years.
The Orlando automotive program expansion will help to address the growing technician needs within that specific region, said UTI. According to state occupational projections, Florida has the third largest number of annual automotive technician openings in the U.S.
