Selected UTI-Exton and NASCAR Tech students enrolled in the automotive technology program can work 20-30 paid hours weekly as part of the early employment program. Participants who remain with MileOne after graduation will be eligible for incentives, including up to $350 in monthly tuition reimbursement and a tool incentive program.

Universal Technical Institute is the transportation, skilled trades and energy education division of UTI, Inc.

“We are focused on helping our students begin rewarding careers in in-demand fields,” UTI-Exton campus president Steve McElfresh said in a news release. “This partnership with MileOne helps equip our students with the workplace knowledge needed for today’s evolving workforce.”

NASCAR Tech campus president Robert Kessler said the partnership will “help our students begin their path toward rewarding careers in school and after they graduate.”

MileOne Autogroup, which bills itself as the largest automotive sales and service delivery network in the Mid-Atlantic area, operates 66 dealerships and 48 service centers in Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia and North Carolina as part of the Hall, Heritage, Herb Gordon, Annapolis and MotorWorld divisions.

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates there will be 67,700 annual job openings for automotive service technicians and mechanics through 2032.

“We have several MileOne locations near the UTI-Exton and NASCAR Tech campuses,” MileOne director of talent acquisition Courtney Zacharias said. “We look forward to working with the students and helping them gain real-world work experience with the potential to join the MileOne family after graduation.”
