UTI, MIAT to Host National Open House Event

Skilled Trades Day on Wednesday, May 4, will showcase the career opportunities available to graduates.

Universal Technical Institute (UTI) and its network of UTI and MIAT campuses nationwidewill be celebrating Skilled Trades Day on Wednesday, May 4, by opening its doors to the community, and showing prospective students the career opportunities available to graduates who’ve trained in the skilled trades.  

The “Open Doors” event will simultaneously be held on most of UTI’s campuses and online, making it accessible to anyone interested in learning more about UTI’s training programs, including automotive, diesel, motorcycle and marine technician training, welding, and CNC machining. Through its recent acquisition of MIAT College of Technology in Canton, Mich. and Houston, Texas, UTI says training is also available in aerospace maintenance, robotics and automation, HVAC, energy technology and wind power and industrial maintenance. Participating UTI and MIAT campuses will be open to the public from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m local time.

UTI says its campuses are also teaming up with local automotive dealerships, manufacturers and other industry partners to showcase the need for highly-skilled trades professionals.

“The Open Doors Event’ is the largest event of its kind that UTI has hosted, and we’re expecting thousands of guests to join us on May 4,” said UTI EVP of Campus Operations, Sherrell Smith. “We are extremely thankful to our employment and industry partners for taking the time to help us emphasize the role these new students can have in vital industries, and the hiring incentives they may offer, such as tuition reimbursement. With more than 146,000 combined job openings[2] in the automotive, diesel and welding industries projected annually through 2030, now is the time to introduce students to the educational experience UTI can provide, and training programs that can be completed in as little as 36 weeks.”
