We want to give you the best chance to succeed, so before you start your program we check to make sure that your math, reading and language skills are appropriate for the program you’ve chosen. You can learn more about the test you’ll take at the Student Success Center here. If your scores are a little low, don’t worry! We have classes to help build your skills so you can succeed in your chosen training program.
The length of time to complete training is completely dependent on the program chosen. In many programs, the length of training depends on the student’s own flexibility and pace based on the open-entry, competency-based format.
The entire purpose of the training at UBTech is to prepare you for a job and we want to give you the best chance possible at finding employment. Our instructors are required to meet with local employers twice a year, forming their “Advisory Committee”. We will assist in anyway possible, visit with your instructor.
UBTech does not operate on a traditional semester calendar. Our open-entry, open-exit enrollment approach to some programs allows students to enter as openings occur. Students enter a program with the goal of obtaining a marketable skill, taking only the courses that lead to that goal. A student who has prior knowledge, learns quickly, and works hard is encouraged to move ahead and complete courses at optimum speed.
UBTech believes that training should be accessible to all individuals regardless of economic status. Students are encouraged to visit with the Student Success Center prior to and throughout their enrollment for other scholarship opportunities. There are many scholarship opportunities as well as other financial aid available. Visit Financial Aid page for more information.
Veterans of Military Service who have been honorably discharged will get priority in the selection process by attaching a copy of their DD 214 to the scholarship application.
