Universal Technical Institute Partners with Roush Yates to Build Course Offerings, Supply Industry’s Critical Need for Skilled Technicians and Machinists

29 04 2015

SCOTTSDALE, AZ – April 29, 2015 – (Motor Sports Newswire) –  Universal Technical Institute (NYSE: UTI), the leading provider of post-secondary education for students seeking careers as professional automotive, diesel, collision repair, motorcycle and marine technicians, and Roush Yates Engines, one of the motorsports industry’s leading manufacturers of performance engines, are partnering to develop a new Computerized Numerical Controls (CNC) program and to enhance UTI’s specialized Power and Performance courses.

CNC Machining

As part of its strategy to add new programs that complement core offerings and train students for fields where there is strong demand for skilled technicians, UTI will partner with Roush Yates to develop a comprehensive Computer Numerical Control (CNC) Machining and Manufacturing Technology program. The program will build on the curriculum currently in development by Roush Yates. This program will prepare students to succeed as entry-level CNC machinists, and position UTI to meet broad and growing industry demand.

Starting in 2016, following receipt of state approval and accreditation, UTI intends to offer its new CNC Machining program in Mooresville, North Carolina, home to both Roush Yates and UTI’s NASCAR Tech campus.  Following a successful implementation in Mooresville, the company plans to expand the CNC program to additional markets.

UTI is offering the program in response to strong demand for skilled CNC machinists, who produce precision parts used in high-performance engines and a wide variety of trucks, motorcycles, cars, boats, but also in industrial applications, aerospace components and medical and surgical equipment. Across these industries, employers are reporting that they simply do not have enough skilled CNC machinists to meet their needs.

“We are excited to partner with a company that has hired our graduates for years and is one of the most respected organizations in motorsports,” said Kim McWaters, chairman and CEO at Universal Technical Institute. “By building on Roush Yates’ substantial and specific expertise, and applying our 50 years of experience training professional technicians, UTI can give students the sophisticated, high-tech training CNC machining requires, and supply skilled CNC machinists to all kinds of industries.”

Power and Performance.

In addition, Roush Yates will enhance the Power and Performance training courses currently offered at UTI campuses nationwide. This series of three, three-week courses (9 weeks total) gives students specialized training in designing, building and modifying high-performance engines. The popular series is a capstone to UTI’s core automotive training, and covers topics such as cylinder head preparation, camshaft technology, engine assembly, and working in a zero-defect environment, giving students skills they can put to work in the motorsports industry, or as service technicians for leading auto manufacturers.

In 2015, Roush Yates Engines and Ford Performance made history by capturing all four races at Daytona International Speedway including the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series™ Daytona 500, NASCAR XFINITY Series™ Alert Today Florida 300, NASCAR Camping World Truck Series™ NextEra Energy Resources 250 and the Rolex 24 At Daytona for the TUDOR United Sports Car Championship.  Not only does the company’s cutting-edge technology win on race tracks, it ultimately makes it into the automobiles we drive today and benefits the more than 30 industry-leading manufacturers — including companies like Ford, Toyota, BMW, and Mercedes-Benz — with which UTI has training partnerships.

“Our agreement with Roush Yates will give our students access to technology right out of the leading shop in motorsports, making our students more attractive to potential employers,” McWaters said. “Whether or not our students pursue a career in high-performance engines, they’ll have the high-tech skills they need to be successful throughout the transportation industry, where demand for trained technicians far outstrips supply.”

UTI’s partnership with Roush Yates demonstrates the important role the company plays in helping close America’s middle skills gap, and its commitment to continually expanding and improving the advanced training that can help students find stable, good-paying jobs and build rewarding careers.

“Partnering with a 50-year veteran technical educator who has a national footprint and the operational know how to deliver the CNC curriculum lets us provide what students and the manufacturing industry need,” said Doug Yates, CEO at Roush Yates Engines. “We’re thrilled to partner with UTI to develop a leading CNC Machining Program in Mooresville, and to enhance UTI’s Power and Performance program. Together, Roush Yates and UTI will provide real-world industry training to the next generation of hands-on learners, and deliver the technicians we all need to be successful.”

Motorcycle Mechanics Institute Expands Supercross Intern Program with Chapparal Honda L&Mc Racing

15 12 2012

Team owners, Jeremy McGrath and Larry Brooks, build on long-standing relationship with MMI

SCOTTSDALE, AZ – December 14, 2012 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Motorcycle Mechanics Institute (MMI), the leading provider of motorcycle technical education training, is proud to announce Chapparal Honda L&Mc Racing as its 2013 MMI Supercross Intern Program partner. L&Mc Racing, owned by Supercross champion, Jeremy McGrath and well-known team manager, Larry Brooks , joins as the fourth team to work with MMI’s Intern Program.

“We’ve hired MMI grads in the past, and while we know what they are capable of, we also know how hard it is to break into this industry,” said Brooks. “This program is about opening up as many doors as we can for MMI graduates, and giving back to the industry that gave so much to us.”

Beginning in 2013, the intern program will give MMI graduates the opportunity to spend a race weekend with a professional Supercross team to see firsthand the inner workings of a race team.  The interns will partner with the teams’ technicians and get a chance to work on race bikes.

“The volunteer intern program was created with the idea of providing an in-road for MMI graduates to the race industry,” said Jocelyn Omen, enthusiast segment manager for MMI. “The chance to bring the program to such a well-respected team that already employs three MMI graduates was something we jumped on. Five MMI graduates were employed last year through the program and our partner, BTO.com/BBMX, and we hope to continue that success with Chaparral Honda.”

MMI has had a long-standing relationship with Jeremy McGrath through the MMI/Jeremy McGrath Scholarship that began in 2004. The scholarship provides $20,000 in scholarship money to three lucky recipients, to be used at the MMI training facilities located in Orlando, Fla. and Phoenix, Ariz.

Those interested in applying for the 2013 MMI/ Jeremy McGrath scholarship may enter by uploading a video of why they deserve the scholarship to http://www.youtube.com/McGrathscholarship. Entrants are encouraged to be creative in their video submissions through song, dance, comedy, etc. Deadline for entries is April 19, 2013.

Industry Equipment, Input in the Classroom Means Trained Technicians Ready to Work

5 04 2012

Harley-Davidson, Kawasaki provide product and curriculum for students

PHOENIX, AZ – April 5, 2012 – (Motor Sports Newswire) –  Motorcycle Mechanics Institute (MMI) has recently added a significant amount of training aids to its manufacturer-specific training programs. Harley-Davidson® and Kawasaki Motors have contributed more than 300 motorsports units to the MMI Phoenix and Orlando campuses, which students will work on directly in the labs.

Harley-Davidson donated more than 65 H-D motorcycles and more than 200 H-D engines to MMI in late 2011. Harley-Davidson and MMI also collaborated to develop hands-on training that is in alignment with Harley-Davidson University® PHD training and will help prepare the students for entry-level positions at Harley-Davidson dealership service departments.  The Harley-Davidson PHD Program is a system specifically designed by the factory to keep professional dealership technicians current with the latest technology and service procedures. The large donation of bikes and engines will be placed into service training within the Harley-Davison Elective at both MMI campuses.

In addition, Kawasaki Motors recently donated 35 units consisting of motorcycles, ATVs, mules and watercraft.  These will be used in the Kawasaki sponsored, supported and equipped 12 week K-Tech Specialist Elective training program in Orlando and Phoenix.  With this type of support from Kawasaki, MMI K-Tech graduates will be better prepared for entry-level technician positions as they start their careers at Kawasaki dealerships across the nation.

“These donations showcase the quality of the MMI programs and the professionalism of its graduates,” said Dennis Hendrix, director of national accounts. “The support received from these partners assists MMI in preparing its graduates for entry-level technician positions within each of the specific brands across the nation.”
