Thats about it for me. I was going to name off UTI......UTI and AAI were my only choices out here in Arizona. But UTI was way more expensive, and the staff weren't very friendly.

Yeah, its great. We are learning about every type of vehicle right now. But what I love, is that AAI is very GM oriented. Which may suck for others, but good for me. :partyon:

West Virginia University actually has an Associates degree in Automotive Technology. It is a college degree instead of just automotive courses. Very good school and you will receive a diploma (Associates degree in applied science) instead of just a certificate. I graduated from there in 1989.

cool do you have a website for them? and is it more auto tech or auto fab as i want to go into the custom car classic resto side of things so need more of a hotrod fabrication based course, like welding, metal work, that sort of thing, the reason why i decied to go to UTI was it was geared more for the person who wants to work at a dealership which is my worst nightmare

Yeah thats very similar to the school here. We will graduate with an Associates Degree as well. We have a GEN EDS course that goes over everything. Its pretty sweet.
