Universal Technical Institute (UTI) Adds 15 Programs in Transportation, Skilled Trades

Universal Technical Institute (UTI) Adds 15 Programs in Transportation, Skilled Trades

UTI says the planned program additions are projected to begin launching in the second quarter of fiscal 2023.

Universal Technical Institute (UTI) announced it is executing on the next phase of its growth and diversification strategy by adding 15 new programs across its campus footprint, including Aviation, HVACR, Robotics, Industrial Maintenance and Wind Energy Technician training to UTI and NASCAR Technical Institute (NTI) branded campuses, and initiating efforts to add Auto and Diesel Essentials to the MIAT Canton, Michigan campus.  

With the recent acquisition of the MIAT College of Technology, and the subsequent integration largely completed, the company is implementing its plan to introduce MIAT programs to its UTI and NTI institutions. This will increase the size of UTI’s addressable market as the organization evolves into becoming a trusted industry-aligned workforce solutions partner with industry and learners.

“Through the disciplined execution of our growth and diversification strategy we continue to expand access to our industry-aligned programs,” said UTI CEO Jerome Grant. “This is a boon for our students, our industry and investment community stakeholders. Expanding the breadth of our career-focused training programs will give prospective students more choices in their post high school educational journey and will allow us to serve a broader population of learners and employers seeking strong workforce and training partners and solutions.

“Universal Technical Institute’s longer-term strategic roadmap includes the MIAT program expansions and a more than doubling of the acquired business as a result. This, in addition to our recently announced intent to acquire Concorde Career Colleges, results in substantial increases in our estimated future revenue and profitability. As previously stated, we currently estimate that fiscal 2025 revenue will exceed $700 million with an estimated adjusted EBITDA margin of approximately 20%.”

UTI says it has four pillars to its growth and diversification strategy: new campuses, program expansions, inorganic growth, and business model extension. UTI’s new blended learning approach, which includes virtual learning and on-campus lab and classroom instruction, has allowed for further optimization or consolidation of its campus footprints to make room for new programs.

Pending all regulatory approvals, UTI says the initial planned program additions are projected to begin launching in the second quarter of fiscal 2023, with the final planned programs launching by the end of 2024. At this time, the majority of the programs have received the necessary state and accreditor approvals, with approvals pending from the Department of Education for all programs, and also the Federal Aviation Administration for the aviation programs. 

UTI says projected program launches include (listed in alphabetical order by campus):

  • UTI-Austin: HVACR
  • UTI-Avondale: Aviation
  • UTI-Exton: Robotics and Automation
  • UTI-Lisle: Wind Power, Industrial Maintenance
  • UTI-Long Beach: Aviation
  • UTI-Miramar: Aviation
  • UTI-Rancho Cucamonga: Wind Power, Industrial Maintenance, and Robotics and Automation
  • UTI-Sacramento: Wind Power, Industrial Maintenance, and Robotics and Automation
  • NTI-Mooresville: Robotics and Automation
  • MIAT-Canton: Auto and Diesel Essentials
