WyoTech Grows Amid New Ownership

WyoTech, the Laramie, WY-based diesel and automotive-related training school, has announced an increase in student enrollment following the purchase by WyoTech diesel alumnus Jim Mathis in 2018. When Mathis led the purchase of WyoTech in July 2018, the school had 12 students. Now, WyoTech boasts nearly 500 students from all 50 states and expects to have more than 1,000 by 2023, according to school officials.

After the state of Wyoming approached him for the purchase in early 2018, Mathis announced plans to reinvigorate the school that gave him an excellent education and training. 

“Moving forward, our vision is simple. We strive to be the best in training and to provide the best student experience with the best outcomes. We understand the history of the school. We also know the positive power behind the WyoTech brand,” Mathis said.

In addition to the programs in diesel, automotive and collision refinishing, WyoTech emphasizes soft skills such as interview skills and personal appearance along with a heavy emphasis on attendance. As a result, nearly 70 nationally recognized companies visit the campus several times a year to recruit the school’s most recent graduates.
