At MTECH, you will join an exclusive group of graduates who benefit from a commitment to excellence shared by everyone at the school. From instructors who deliver a relevant, industry-driven curriculum to academic and career counselors focused on ensuring you have the tools you need to succeed, we all share the same goal: your success as a student. 

Our program is an employer sponsored program, which means you need to be hired by a participating employer or have your current employer sign up as a participator. Contact tsmith@agc-utah.org for a list of participating employers.

Most participating employers cover the cost of tuition and books for their employees. Cost per semester can vary slightly, but most semesters total cost is under $800.

Sponsoring employers are required to pay students a minimum wage based on a sliding scale up to the minimum journeyman wage. Most companies pay far more than the minimum.
