MTI was founded in 1995 in Lincoln, Illinois. Since opening its doors, MTI has achieved many milestones, including receiving national accreditation for its course offerings, and expanding our programs and courses beyond the original welding program.
MTI has always taken great pride in touching the lives of students by giving them the hands-on workforce training they need to be successful. After over twenty years and thousands of students, that goal has remained the same.
Our mission is to offer workforce training that will provide graduates with the skills necessary to gain entry-level employment in their chosen field.
