Love Truck Repair? Travel Centers of America will Relocate You

Diesel and Auto Technician students at Universal Technical Institute (UTI) can now jumpstart their careers while still enrolled, thanks to a new collaboration with TravelCenters of America (TA). This partnership offers UTI students exclusive opportunities to intern and work for TA's Truck Service division, gaining valuable hands-on experience before graduation. As an added benefit, TA provides tuition reimbursement for qualifying UTI graduates, smoothing the transition from student to skilled technician.

This exciting collaboration benefits both sides: students gain practical experience and potential job offers, while TA taps into a pipeline of qualified talent, strengthening their workforce.

"We are excited to bring another nationwide partner like TravelCenters of America into the UTI family to provide our students and alumni with opportunities for great careers and future tuition reimbursement," said UTI Division President, Tracy Lorenz. "Like UTI, TA has a passion for helping Americans get back on the road through the automotive and diesel services they provide, and we value their support in helping our students get even more real-world experience."

Students at UTI campuses in Avondale, AZ, Rancho Cucamonga, CA, Lisle, IL, Mooresville, NC, Exton, PA, and Dallas and Houston, TX, are eligible to apply for EEP opportunities, with 17 currently participating TA Truck Service locations. As part of UTI's EEP, TA will offer current students 20-30 hours of paid work experience and consideration for full-time employment after graduation. TA will offer new hire bonus payments at both six months and one year of employment and relocation assistance for technicians across the country.

"TA has been hiring UTI graduates for years and we are proud to formalize our relationship with such an iconic brand," said John Dodson, VP, Business Alliance and NASCAR at UTI. "The TA branding we will be adding within spaces at UTI campuses is just one element of our commitment to supporting tomorrow's technicians. With more than 285 locations in 44 states, and nearly 3,000 technicians, TA offers great opportunities to both existing students and graduates."

"We are proud to offer unique ways to attract new talent to TA Truck Service, known for being among the best in the industry for truck maintenance and repair," said Brian Lukavich, SVP, TA Truck Service. "We are excited to welcome new technicians to TA and look forward to providing them with a meaningful career with plenty of growth opportunities."

TA Truck Service includes a variety of advanced in-bay services, Mobile Maintenance and Emergency Roadside Assistance.
