WyoTech Campus in the CA Capital of Sacramento

Updated on January 16, 2012

WyoTech is a chain of schools that first opened shop in 1966 in the city of Laramie, Wyoming. It has expanded out across the United States all the way from California to Florida. One of the campuses is located in Sacramento, CA (the capital of the most populous state in America).

Like most of the other campuses, WyoTech Sacramento, CA is a trade school with courses in automotive technology. However, it also has technology courses in other construction and maintenance fields (like the electrician course).

As of February 2011, the Sacramento location offers the following training courses:

1. Automotive Technology

Students learn to fix and maintain engines and related parts. Specialized classes in this course include Advanced Automotive Diagnostics, Street Rod and Custom Fabrication, Light-Duty Diesel, Motorsports Chassis Fabrication, High Performance Powertrain and Applied Service Management.

2. Collision Refinishing Technology

This is the auto-body repair program. Specialty courses included in this WyoTech Sacramento curriculum include Motorsports Chassis Fabrication, Street Rod and Custom Fabrication and Trim and Upholstery Technology.

3. Electrician

The WyoTech Sacramento electrician course has a diverse curriculum. Students will not just learn how to do electrical work in homes. Work on commercial buildings and industrial plants is also covered in this technician course.


Those seeking a California career in HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning) should be aware that becoming an independent HVAC contractor requires a state license. To get this license, you will need work experience, but you must also pass a California HVAC license exam. Getting hands-on experience through this WyoTech Sacramento HVAC course can potentially help you get a job and pass the licensing exam.

Those who are already involved in this profession but need to get up to speed on modern equipment can attend on a part-time basis. Evening classes are available for this purpose.

WyoTech Sacramento Housing

This campus does not have its own dorm or housing facilities. However, the school can provide you with information about getting housing in the greater Sacramento area. Use the contact information below. Also remember to ask about financial aid to help pay for living expenses and WyoTech Sacramento tuition. Do this as quickly as possible.

West Sacramento CA, 95605
