UTI Rancho Cucamonga to train Fisker technicians in preparation for the Fisker Karma

LOS ANGELES, Feb. 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Universal Technical Institute, Inc. (UTI) and Fisker Automotive have announced plans to provide technical training to Fisker dealership personnel at the UTI campus in Rancho Cucamonga, Calif. To support the much anticipated release of Fisker's Karma model, UTI forecasts that it will train approximately 100 technicians from Fisker's U.S. Dealers in spring 2011.

"At Universal Technical Institute, we have a passion for all things automotive, and we are honored to be involved in the launch of the Fisker Karma into the U.S. auto marketplace," said Greg Dickson, vice president of customer solutions and advanced training for UTI. "Fisker automobiles bring a technologically advanced platform that is coupled with design elements that will certainly turn heads. Being chosen to assist in the technical training and certification for the launch phase of this new brand is an exciting opportunity for UTI."

The Fisker Karma is expected to make its dealer showroom debut in spring 2011. The Fisker Karma is a first-of-its-kind, four-door plug-in hybrid premium sports sedan that offers unparalleled eco-friendly style and luxury, yet to be seen by any other electric vehicle in today's automotive market.

"Fisker Automotive delivers responsible luxury without compromise to its customers," said Marti Eulberg, vice president of marketing and sales for Fisker. "It's key that our retailers and technicians deliver this standard of excellence on our behalf and because UTI is the industry's choice for training automotive technicians, they made a logical choice to partner with us as we debut the Fisker Karma in the U.S."

UTI will train Fisker technicians in several areas, including hybrid systems, routine maintenance, chassis, coachwork, roadside recovery, engine management, and electrical systems.
