Opened in the early 1940’s in Blairsville, Vale Technical Institute began by providing training classes for the automobile repair trades. Originally nicknamed “Vale Tech”, the Institute swiftly became known as the “Ivy League of Technical Schools”. During WWII, Vale trained women (a first in that era) to repair automobiles. Students in the automobile repair trade classes went through an eighteen-month training regime learning all phases of auto repair while living in dormitory style accommodations. In 1949, Vale Tech started its first three-week auto estimating class. The course was called Automotive ‘Estimatics’, a word that became a trade mark and is still current today.
