Motorcycle mechanic school moves to Avondale

Posted

Universal Technical Institute's motorcycle mechanic school has relocated from Phoenix to the institute’s campus in Avondale, after first announcing the consolidation in 2020.  

The Motorcycle Mechanics Institute was founded in 1973, and offers manufacturer-specific training from six leading brands, and offers an education in motorcycle mechanics, ATVs, side-by-sides, personal watercraft, snowmobiles and more.

“The relocation of MMI Phoenix to our UTI-Avondale location brings all our Arizona-based training programs and services to a single state-of-the-industry facility,” said UTI’s CEO Jerome Grant. “That’s better for students, better for instructors, and better for UTI’s bottom line, by allowing us to decrease fixed expenses while giving UTI the increased flexibility to support new programs and meet the evolving needs of our students and 35 brand partners,” he continued. 

Students can complete MMI’s core motorcycle technician training program in 42 weeks. The facility comprises nearly 60,000 square feet, including 26 classrooms and labs. Brand partners include Harley-Davidson, Honda, Yamaha, Suzuki, Kawasaki and BMW.

MMI’s offerings join a full suite of programs already available at UTI’s Avondale location, including automotive mechanic training; diesel mechanic training; and welding training. Manufacturer Specific Advanced Training (MSAT) offered at UTI-Avondale includes the BMW FastTrack, Ford FACT, GM Technician Career Training, Cummins Diesel Engines, Cummins Power Generation, Daimler Trucks Finish First, and Volvo Tekniker Apprentice programs.
