Arizona Automotive Institute (AAI) believes in the power of practical, hands-on learning, especially for those interested in technical trades. At AAI, we combine classroom education with simulated training. This helps prepare graduates for real-world scenarios in their field when they enter the workforce.

Traditional academic learning has an important role to play in technical trades training. It is important to know the history, important concepts, evolutions of the field, and practical skills. Lectures conducted by professionals with in  field experience are vital to a well-rounded education. However, knowing how to do something is different than actually doing it. Real-world experience at an educational level provides a new level of immersive learning that allows a student to be workforce ready upon program completion.

Technical skills development can help you stand out when you enter the workforce. The technical trades rely on you to be able to go beyond what you learned in class. The value you bring as an employee comes from what you can actually do. In many instances, this involves an employer providing further hands-on training before feeling completely confident in their employee. When an employer sees you’ve graduated from an institute such as AAI, they can see from our hands-on programs that  graduates have experienced hands-on applications associated with the field.
