YTI Career Institute


Campus Programs


YTI Career Institute, celebrating 34 years of success, first opened its doors in 1967. YTI Career Institute began as the American Institute of Drafting on Richland Avenue in York. Throughout the 1970's, the Drafting Program (now Computer Aided Drafting and Design) flourished. In 1981, the school moved to larger facilities on West King Street.

1984 brought the addition of the Electronics Technology program to YTI, and in 1985 yet another move to the former Springettsbury Township Elementary School on Whiteford Road in East York. These new facilities presented the school with the opportunity to expand program offerings to include Business curricula: Computerized Accounting and travel Tourism. Heating, Air Conditioning, and Refrigeration Technology and Industrial Automation/Robotics Technology were added in 1992 and 1995, respectively. Shortly thereafter, the Business Department expanded with the inclusion of Business Administration and Computer Systems Specialist. In 1998, Motorcycle Technology, Microsoft Networking Professional, and Culinary Arts/Restaurant Management were added. Pastry Arts rounded out the food service programs, beginning in October, 2000.

Mission Statement

YTI is helping committed students attain rewarding careers through industry-modeled, student-centered, training and support of the highest caliber.

YTI's Mission is a beacon. It brightens our students' prospects of a fulfilling career and it illuminates our course to the future.

YTI's Mission establishes the primacy of our students. They have set very immediate goals for attaining a rewarding career. Practical, applied, hands-on learning needed to get and hold the job of their dreams, this is foremost in their minds. We deliver this by modeling our faculty, facilities, equipment and curriculum after the industry they will enter.

We acknowledge the financial and personal sacrifices our students make to attend YTI, and we work with them to make those sacrifices manageable. In return we ask for and receive one thing, their unwavering commitment to achieving their career and personal growth.

We recognize that our students' success ultimately depends on their ability to satisfy their prospective employers. So, we partner with employers to ensure our programs reflect real work expectations and settings through program advisory committees and externships. Once students have completed their training, we again call on our network of employer relationships to assist students in securing a job in their chosen field.

Throughout the process we strive to meet the highest practicable standards, and our faculty, equipment and facilities reflect that commitment. We strive for superior outcomes in student satisfaction, program completion and most importantly career placement.

We are YTI and this is our Mission.

Financial Aid

An Investment with a Good Return

Education is a big investment. And it's one that not even Wall Street can match. The training you'll get at YTI increases your chances of finding a job in one of the fastest-growing industries. And it decreases your chance of being unemployed. You'll be more likely to find an interesting, rewarding career in a field that offers lots of opportunity. When you graduate from YTI, you stand a better chance of finding a job and making more money than your peers with less education. Combine that with greater opportunities for job satisfaction, and your YTI training becomes an investment that's hard to beat! To learn more about Financial Aid, choose a link below.
