WyoTech fails miserably due to poor education and a high percentage of teachers that are paper whipped into teachers, they employ half of MMIs misfits from past times and it still continues. They leave one and go to the other only to share antique knowledge and be lead by cheerleaders.

U.T.I has curriculum that is out of date and has been for several years now. U.T.I. is all about the money, I have been an instructor their and have been told by management to pass students that did not pass a class or suffer the wrath of the higher ups. It's always the instructors fault if a student fails not the students, if 28 out of 29 students pass it's not the instructors fault. I think mr. jobhunter is wrong.
Indeed what you posted is not true the demand for auto and diesel techs has never been higher and the demand will continue as boomers age out. I have seen amazing opportunities and career paths. For profit schools such as UTI staff work very hard and they have very strong industry partnerships in the community and beyond. The only reason someone is not employable is because of their work ethic or bad attitude. Study the grad and retention rates at public and private colleges and you will be surprised how low it is and why are they are not held to the same stringent demand of proof of employment in the field they went to school for and not just employed period at any job. I have been employed by both types of schools and no one follows up with students post grad like UTI does. If schools or businesses did not expect to turn a profit no one would have a job anywhere.
The sales management team likes to pad the numbers by moving student to other start dates that will never start. It's a game that is dirty and dishonest for visibility to real show-rate numbers.
I forgot to put Wyotech in my post, sorry my bad.
These for profit schools need to go. There are not that many jobs in the automotive industry that are attractive to technicians anymore. The dealerships are all about themselves, the independents are running on a shoe string budget and don't want to pay a tech what they are worth. I don't know about the diesel industry but I'm sure its a little better, who knows? The schools promise you the world and all you get is a 50000 dollar loan to pay off and a minimum wage job, sound familiar?
Finally someone who knows the truth about U.T.I. If you have more info. share it with us.
