COPE -- High school students from Orangeburg Consolidated School District 4 and Bamberg School District 1 recently attended an event presented by Universal Technical Institute (UTI) and NASCAR Technical Institute (NTI) at Cope Area Career Center.
Students interacted with Ed Coull, admissions representative for UTI and NTI, as he shared educational and job market statistics.
CACC school counselor Dee Edwards said, “It is extremely important that students understand that not only are there numerous jobs and careers to pursue and secure out in the world, but that the old four-year college route is certainly not the only way or a fit for everyone.”
Headquartered in Scottsdale, Arizona, UTI is the leading provider of postsecondary education for students seeking careers as professional automotive, diesel, CNC, collision repair, motorcycle and marine technicians.
With more than 200,000 graduates in its 53-year history, UTI offers undergraduate degree and diploma programs at 13 campus locations across the United States, as well as manufacturer-specific training programs at dedicated training centers.
Through its campus-based school system, UTI provides specialized post-secondary education programs under the banner of several well-known brands, including Universal Technical Institute, Motorcycle Mechanics Institute, Marine Mechanics Institute (MMI) and NASCAR Technical Institute.
