Universal Technical Institute’s Mooresville campus, NASCAR Technical Institute, is now accepting applications for Ignite – a free summer program for high school juniors interested in exploring high-tech, high-demand careers as auto, diesel and motorcycle technicians.

Participating students receive intensive, hands-on training and the opportunity to earn credits toward a UTI program. Ignite will be offered at every UTI campus nationwide, and locally at NASCAR Tech June 10-28.

Ignite participants learn automotive basics as they complete a 3-week, no-cost course – an introductory sample of the programs completed by full-time UTI students. The Ignite curriculum emphasizes a career focused education that prepares students for the high-tech ever-evolving transportation industry of the future.

Students will explore career opportunities in the transportation field, receive hands-on training on today’s latest technologies and learn from UTI graduates and local employers about the high need and earning potential for trained technicians.

The Ignite program is now accepting applications across UTI’s campuses. For more information or to enroll, visit www.uti.edu/ignite.
