THIS SCHOOL TOTALY MISREPRESENTS ITS SELF. THE FINANCIAL AID HAS NO IDEA WHAT THERE DOING AND WILL MESS YOU UP.JUST ASK THEM HOW MUCH U HAVE TO PAY AND THEY CANT ANSWER.
NEXT THE SCOOL LIES LIKE CRAZY AND WILL TELL U THEY WILL TAKE CARE OF STUFF AND THEY NEVER DO.
AND THEY TRY TO TEACH STUDENTS WITH BROKEN EQUIPMENT AND MOTORS WITH MISSING PARTS

I wish I had read this web site prior to my attending UTI Glendale, Illinois HVAC Training classes 1996-1997. I spent $13,000 for one year training I could have gotten free and been paid for my efforts in an apprenticeship program which I got into after attending UTI. The Union Trades appreticeship programs are the only way to go. You get paid as you learn on the job and attend classes at night. UTI is just a big business. It may help some. But for the majority it may not be for them. I do not know when UTI stopped offering HVAC training, but there were many in my class who came from southern states and they returned home with a trade they could earn money at. For me the IBEW electrical apprenticeship was my ticket to success.

I just started UTI/MMI I am going to MMI at Phenoix AZ campus. I just recently statered. The sexual talk in class in just out of control, I sat in class my thrid day had a young instructor stand in front me less then 6 inch from my face and talk about how men feel that the size of thiese engine was the size of thier ego, he grabed his cock 3 times in my face.. then not 30 mins later he tells these young boys to make buddies here drink work on the bike and study.. my mouth dropped having a young son the same age as most of these boys.. Yet not once did the teacher tell the boys that drinking and working on a bike leads to getting it finshed and wanting to take it for a test ride while your drinking.
I even took my husband to the offuice to inform them I was paying good money and didnt want to hear all the F bombs, cock grabing and other such behavers, Im a 41 year old stright female, that wears high heels and makeup and loves to work on harleys, I was working on 1978 knuckleheads sitting on my fathers lap when I was 8 years old, and for thier so callled retired drill instructor who came ito class to let us know some whinny female complained and so the teachers arnt allowed to talk the way they want and how he fought for are freedom, hey dude i pulled your combate recored your didnt even make it 8 years in the army and was wrote up for sexual discrimination. As for the rule of the school that are children we are paying for, and the ruile is 1st rule of fight club is, i9 taught

Ok, here it goes. As a former Collision repair Instructor at UTI Houston I suggest the following.
Spend a year working in a facility as a painter or body tech. helper. You wont make much money but you will learn the trade and if you really have the talent, yes talent you should be able to become a painter or body tech. within 18 months. If that sounds too fast paced to start check out some local junior colleges such as San Jacinto College. They have collision repair courses at a fraction of the cost. I started taking courses there around 1980 and showed my first 68 convertable Camaro in the Astrohall in 1982. I got second place post war convertable. I have gone on over the years building race cars and show cars, managing, estimating, etc..I am now finally going for the coveted Licensed Adjuster. Once again it will be my real world experience that will put me in the top 10% of adjusters that get the real work, not a certificate.
I taught real world situations at UTI for about five years until a new EM decided he was gonna show me how the cow ate the cabbage (In his words). He was all about retention and retaining that tuition fee and was worried some of my lab classes were too intense. So as not to lose any of the whimps who couldnt handle the course he wanted me to no longer use "Bertha" my 12 pound sledge hammer in my dent repair lab. I refused and it later came up missing? Not to fear, a few weeks later I was helping work on a paint booth and found it!

Of all the reviews I have read I am amazed at how many say they graduated with high honors yet can not spell simple words (there is a spell check button you know). Just how well are these instructors or university officials screening these applicants. And I have yet to hear of those impressive money figures implied by the recruiters. I am really reconsidering investing my funds on behalf my child. This is not looking good!

Well Looking at all the reviews from this web site along with all others " To little to late" Hands down this schools financial aid is COMPLETELY a scam ! My husband went to MMI in Orlando FL. He loved to learn and made a few friends. His class was down to 5 people when he was forced to leave. Like everyone else here he had a great grade average in every field. We still have his School folder with the last coarse, I can see that the stuff they are teaching them has nothing to do with marine mechanics. You could however learn how to build a bomb with the chemical course he was taking. My husband was trying to build a better life for our family, and instead we got completely burned. Financial aid took over $4,000 from our private loan. When asked when someone was actually in the office their explanation was .." we do not have to disclose that information" Everyone who even reads these...PLEASE Do not be fooled!
