Nascar Technical Institute

I've never really been interested in UTI, but the prospect of working for a race team is a dream of mine.

Does anyone know someone who completed this? I know it's a long shot considering it's in North Carolina but don't really know where to get unbiased answers.

speed channel you'll get tons of nascar info

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .

I had a buddy that attended it. He works in a Nascar shop now. I think he does suspension work.

It all goes back together the way it came apart...unless it came apart at redline!

Sweet. You still keep in contact with him? When did he attend and did he mention what the job market was like?

I'm sure finding a nascar job is going to be very tough. And they will look for someone that stands out in the field.

I figured as much, UTI has always seemed shady to me... maybe I should just try going to graduate school.

have you worked on any cars?

southern Illinois has a 4 year automotive program.

Only thing I would find worth going to UTI or wyoming tech is some of the specialized classes.

Hi, being a former UTI Instructor here in Glendale Hts. I can tell you that the NTI course is tough. You have to go through the basic Auto program first and maintain a very high GPA. As mentioned before, and as I understand from the business end of it, job placement is very tough, especially with todays economy. If you were to be at the top of your class your chances would be a little better. I was the type of instructor that always told my students to go for it. Even if you don't make it to where you want to be, at least you tried it and got the experience. You never know what could happen. Give them a call and get the info. Cheers.

1998 Honda CBR 1100XX Blackbird...Puig Touring screen, Corbin Gunfighter/lady saddle, Two Bros. C2 Polished Aluminum Oval Slip-Ons, Factory Pro Stage 1 jet kit, VFR bars, Pazzo style levers, Hyperpro spring kit w/Jaws fork preload adjusters, Roadsmart tires, more to come.

ASE Automotive Master Tech, 20+ years in the business. Will do side jobs at my house, your parts or mine. PM for available services, questions and labor quote. Happy to give advice as well.

UTI grad programs are only good if you're willing to sign your life away for a year or 3 after you graduate. You don't pay for the programs so you sign your life away and they basically own your ass for years and can place you in the middle of Oklahoma if they'd like. My personal opinion is if you didn't grow up around cars and fixing them with a natural talent for fixing shit, going to school isn't going to magically make you better at it. You go and pay copious amounts of money to learn at a state of the art facility and then get a piece of paper that helps you get your foot in the door.

If you do it, make sure you do it because it is your passion and not for money. Have you ever seen a rich mechanic? If you think there's a chance you might lose interest don't even bother. In no way do I mean to discourage you, I am only trying to emphasize the importance of choosing and commiting to this path.

I graduated from UTI with a high GPA and had some awards along the way as well. In the end it doesn't mean jack shit unless you have the experience and know how to play shop politics. Book time is a bitch when all the cock smoking juice sucking techs bring donuts for the service writers every morning.
