WyoTech’s $16M Expansion Signals Need for More Instructors

The school is seeking new instructors to staff its new 90,000-sq.-ft. expansion and accommodate its growing student body.

WyoTech, a U.S. automotive, diesel, and collision trade school, announced it is seeking new instructors, following the construction of a new $16 million, 90,000-square-foot expansion to its Laramie, Wyoming, campus. Completed in November of 2022, the expansion allows the school to increase its capacity to 1,200 students. 

Between 2018 and 2021, WyoTech says enrollment increased by 2,300%, prompting the need for additional space. The school’s current student enrollment is 850 students.

With this expansion, WyoTech adds it is seeking new instructors to join its team — automotive, diesel, and collision professionals passionate about teaching and mentoring the next generation of technicians. No teaching experience is required to apply.

“We’re thrilled to be able to offer more students the opportunity to pursue their dreams and learn the skills they need to be successful in the automotive, diesel, and collision industries,” said Shawn Nunley, WyoTech’s vice president of training. “Now we’re looking for instructors dedicated to helping our students reach their full potential and are excited to be a part of the WyoTech team.” 

“It’s a great place to raise kids while offering a unique blend of natural beauty, small-town charm, and opportunities for outdoor adventure. If you love the outdoors and value a sense of community, come on up, take a tour and do an interview,” said Levi Gemmill, automotive instructor at WyoTech.
