July 22, 2013—Universal Technical Institute (UTI) instructor Randolph McGinty is the first person in history to complete every collision repair training course offered by Chief University, the technical training arm of Chief Automotive Technologies.

McGinty has taken all eight classes over the last 10 years at UTI’s Houston campus, earning advanced master structural technician and advanced master structural damage analysis professional certifications.

McGinty completed the milestone in April when he finished Chief University’s newest course, Design Based Repair.

"The Chief University courses and instructors are awesome," said McGinty. "Unlike some other industry training programs, these courses require a great deal of thought and present new information. I, of course, take everything I learn back to my students so they have useful, real-world knowledge."

McGinty teaches structural and non-structural repair classes at the UTI Houston campus and has performed nearly every job in the collision repair industry over his more than 25-year career.

McGinty insists his Chief University classes, totaling more than 120 hours, benefit his students by allowing him to teach them the latest trends and technology.

"Design Based Repair was the class I enjoyed the most because it provided brand new material," said McGinty. "Information about new steels, new methods of production and the way damage travels through a vehicle is highly valuable to technicians today."
