Students, Parents & Educators
A far cry from just a generation ago, today’s Skilled Trades offer an array of opportunities that challenge both mind and body. And not only in traditional fields, like construction and advanced manufacturing, but also in new and emerging fields, including healthcare and information technology.
Career. It’s a pretty daunting word, especially when you’re being asked to decide something that could affect much of your working life. For many, Skilled Trades often provide a faster and more affordable path to employment than a four-year degree.
6th - 12th Grade Students
Beyond what you learn in the classroom, you might also be discovering your own interests and passions. Do you like technology? Working with others? Making good money? A career in Skilled Trades could be just the thing for you.
