Universal Technical Institute Brings Back Free ‘Ignite’ Summer Class

Universal Technical Institute is proud to announce that it is bringing back “Ignite,” a free, summer program designed to give high school juniors an exclusive look at rewarding, high-tech careers in the transportation industry.

Participating students receive intensive, hands-on technical training and the opportunity to earn credit toward a UTI program. Ignite will be offered at each of UTI’s campuses nationwide.

Ignite students learn hands-on in the summer of 2018.

“We partner with more than 30 manufacturer brands and thousands of employers across the transportation industry and skilled trades, and they consistently tell us they need more trained technicians,” said Kim McWaters, UTI President and CEO. “We’re talking about high-tech, high-paying careers that literally keep our economy moving – and employers are desperate to fill them. The summer Ignite program exposes more students to the career and the power of technical education, showing them firsthand how exciting their training and future can be.”

Summer Ignite students from 2018 learn first-hand about working in the transportation industry.

During the program’s 3-week courses, Ignite participants are afforded an introductory sample of the curriculum completed by full-time UTI students. The Ignite program emphasizes a career-focused education that prepares students for the high-tech ever-evolving transportation industry of the future. 

Students are able to explore career opportunities in the transportation field, receive hands-on training on today’s technologies and learn from UTI graduates and local employers about the high need and earning potential for trained technicians.

The Ignite program is now accepting applications across UTI’s campuses. For more information or to enroll, visit www.uti.edu/ignite.
