WyoTech is a system of technical schools that provide career training in several different skilled professions. Originally named the Wyoming Technical Institute and based in Laramie, the school now has five campuses located in Pennsylvania, Florida and California, in addition to the original Wyoming campus. Program offerings include instruction in automotive repair, diesel repair, collision, and motorcycle repair. WyoTech also offers training in marine equipment as well as skilled trades such as HVAC, plumbing and electrical. All programs issue professional certificates or diplomas. Associate degree programs are also available.
Faculty members at WyoTech are industry professionals who love what they do. Instructors use their professional experience to teach students applicable skills and knowledge that the student will use in their daily working life. Their stated goal is to boost student confidence by teaching them the specific skills needed to succeed in their chosen field.
Diploma programs at WyoTech allow students to focus entirely on technical skills, while associate degree programs allow for students to get a more expansive education. With the exception of the Wyoming campus, WyoTech schools are commuter-based schools and do not provide on-campus housing for their students. Courses at the school are taught during the normal workday, Monday through Friday for 8 hours per day. WyoTech prides itself on promoting professionalism, and student grades are updated weekly to reflect "professionalism points." Students wishing to attend WyoTech must agree to follow the school's code of conduct prior to their acceptance. Career services -- including resume building, interview preparation, and job placement -- are also available. Financial aid is available for those who qualify.
