About WyoTech

WyoTech is dedicated to providing career training in the motorcycle, diesel, automotive, watercraft and collision refinishing industries. Our courses are designed to give students the skills and hands-on-experience they need to pursue their passion in one of these exciting fields.

Most of our courses can be completed in less than a year, which means WyoTech students can begin their career much sooner than attending a four-year school.* Through the use of industry-based advisory committees and strong industry contacts, we can upgrade our training courses and curricula to enhance each student's employment possibilities.

At WyoTech, we also establish guidelines for attendance, behavior and academic achievement in our classrooms and shop floors. The professionalism, technical skills and knowledge gained through WyoTech's career training courses all combine to produce WyoTech graduates who are ready and prepared to seek employment in a challenging and exciting industry.

Financial aid opportunities

In today's competitive world, many employers seek to hire employees with hands-on-experience, and some type of degree or training certification. For your son or daughter, this means finding the right career training course along with the financial aid package to get him or her into the career of their dreams.

One of the biggest financial assistance mistakes made by parents and students is the assumption they won't qualify because of income or home ownership. This is why it's important to contact WyoTech directly to learn about the financial aid packages available. We have a dedicated team of student finance planners who are here to help you and your student get the money they need for their education.

Once enrolled in a WyoTech course, our student finance planners will help you determine the means of financing your child's education. We'll walk you through the available options of covering tuition, such as: grants, scholarships and loans. Your team at WyoTech is dedicated to helping you find the right solution.

Career options

Getting the right education is only the first part of the journey. At WyoTech, we're also committed to helping your son or daughter find a job after graduation. A nationwide network of employers recognizes the quality of our graduates. However, finding employment will ultimately depend on your child's academic performance and self-motivation.

Each WyoTech campus has a team of career services professionals who will work with you to help your son or daughter's career dreams become a reality. We offer one-on-one assistance with resume development, resume distribution, job listings and career fairs.
