Why They Value Veterans
Universal Technical Institute values military veterans because they have played a vital role in the country’s security, and they can continue protecting its well-being when they pursue a civilian career as a technician by training at UTI.
With more than 12 million commercial and family vehicles on U.S. roads, this country relies on skilled technicians to keep them all running smoothly. The economy depends on it, as do millions of American families. It also means there are jobs available. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics forecasts more than 1.2 million transportation technician job openings between 2016 and 2026.
Universal Technical Institute is a great option for veterans to learn skills that are in demand. In fact, more than 5,200 veterans are currently enrolled in programs at UTI. Why? UTI has a military-specific admissions team, offers military scholarships to those who qualify and has been identified as a Military Friendly School.®
