Default Universal Technical Institute... Drug Testing...

I have a cousin who is going to UTI with me... and I just filled him in on the drug testing policy... We're starting pretty soon... and we're just wondering what exactly they do. Is it a private urinary deal or what?

Not that he's worried about failing or anything. The idea just aroused our curiosity. Thanks a lot.

Well if your clean you have nothing to worry about right? I just got done being with "***** patrol" about 2 weeks ago and I had to be that guy that watches you take a ****... if they do it like the military you have to **** in a cup while somone watches you. I doubt they will do a hair test since thats more expensive to do.

They will only test if they are suspicious. One guy got kicked out the whole time I was there. He came in to school at 6 in the morning wreeking of hard alcohol. So they drug tested him too and he was out.

Wow really? Somebody told me that they drug test everybody right in the beginning...
That's a relief.

I graduated a couple years ago. Very few people got drug tested while I was there. They called the drug testing "random" but I think they only tested people that they suspected. I had a few friends that smoked pot the whole time they were in school and never got tested. Just don't go to school fucked up.

If you come back clean they may not accept you. Just drink some alcohol the night before and show them you're not too good for their program.

you going to the avondale campus?

drug testing is done at random, but the entire time I've been there I've only seen 3 in my classroom over 9 months, and usually they just pull 1-3 people from each class. they do not test upon admission. I know of two people that got hit, but I hang out with a lot of the school's stoner crowd. They use mouth swab tests, and you'll know when your being tested because you'll get a slip at the start of class telling you to go to some random classroom, so pop in some chew or chug some scope or do whatever you have to do when you get that slip!

if you do get busted, first offense is a re-phase (re-take the 3 week class) and you take some gay class over the weekend. second is the same with a 6 week vacation, and third is termination...but i've never heard of anybody getting hit 3 times.

Why would a college drug test people? This just sounds stupid to me. Really why does it matter if someone does drugs if it doesnt affect anyone else?

I think that is so stupid. i can go get WASTED on booze and kill myself but god lord in heaven almighty save my soul for smoking that joint the night before. As long as you dont come to work/school fucked up it shouldnt matter, its your life and time, not theirs.

I am going to guess that the reason they do this is to protect everyone in the shop. More chances to forget to do something if you are high/drunk.

I do know that if you get into a program like BMW/Mercedes/VW that everyone is required to take a drug test on the first day.

If your future is important theeeeeen don't do something that might get you kicked out of school If you can't figure that out on your own then maybe higher education really isn't for you.

And if you can't figure out why they might feel the need to do these tests watch the video. Sure accidents happen but minimizing them is the name of the game.

While I was at NTI, I only ever heard of one count of drug testing. Which was after a "pipe" was found in the Auto Trans lab. Ended up being the teachers apparently haha. I did just start the Volvo MSAT on Nov. 15 and we had to go take drug test the first day. Pee test. No big deal though for me as I have never been involved in drugs.

But like people said, it's only supposed to be random or if they think you are messed up. So now it's up to you: stop and not have to worry about it, or just don't go in messed up and hope you don't get hit with a random.

P.S. - You need to take me for a ride! I left my Camaro back in Tennessee, and I'm missing it haha.
