“The Rancho Cucamonga campus is the first of multiple UTI campuses slated to launch the welding program as a part of UTI’s strategy to grow our student population and serve industry’s needs,” said Roger Speer, campus president and regional vice president. “At a time when our country has such a strong and growing demand for skilled professionals, the welding program gives students industry-aligned training and another promising career path.”
