What is a Trade School?
Often referred to as a Trade School, Technical School or Vocational School, a Trade School is a non-traditional school that emphasizes career training in a skilled technical field. The trade school educates and trains the students in the technical skills and core academic requirements in order to secure employment in the career field the student has chosen.
Is a Trade School better than a 4 year college?
The answer to that question depends on the career goals of the student. If the student wishes to learn a skilled trade in a short period of time and begin working sooner rather than waiting for four years before beginning work, then yes, a trade school can be a better choice for the perspective student.
Can I enter Trade School right out of high school?
In most cases the answer is yes. Although, most Trade Schools require a High School Diploma or GED before you start training.
How long does it take to complete Trade School Training?
That will depend 100% on the Trade School that you attend, the training certifications, degrees or diplomas you earn and the skilled trade program you select to train in. In almost all cases though, the program length is measured in months and not years.
