Meet Motorcycle / Power Equipment Technician Instructors, Gary Simcock & WillIAM Barry
- Instructor at MTTI since 2013

- Motorcycle Technician since 1986 at Bettencourt's Honda-Suzuki
"Years ago, when I attended a Suzuki update seminar held at MTTI, the place blew me away with all of the engines and vintage bikes hanging from the ceiling. Now as an Instructor, I love sharing my passions for fixing bikes with students. It's great to see them grow during the program, and then go out and get ahead in the motorcycle / power equipment industry."

“I appreciate the hands-on training at MTTI. When I became a student 11 years ago, MTTI was the only program in the northeast offering motorcycle and small engine repair—but I never wished for another option. Students in the program get credit for working on their own bikes in the shop. I tore down my Yamaha XT500 and built it back up. If you are thinking about enrolling, it’s all about the work you are willing to do. You will get out of MTTI’s program what you put into it.”
