Roadtrip Nation: Changing Gears is made possible by Universal Technical Institute. We're proud to support Changing Gears, which celebrates America’s hands-on heroes — the mechanical geniuses who literally keep our world moving. For over 50 years, Universal Technical Institute has provided education that helps technicians make the most of their talents, and today — in partnership with manufacturers and employers — we train them hands-on in the high-tech and high-demand skilled trades. Our goal is to have our students graduate ready to work as technicians in the transportation, welding and CNC machining fields.
