Trade Schools in California

Trade schools in California could allow you to advance your career or change it altogether, without you having to spend the extra money and time in a traditional four-year university program. The U.S. Department of Labor Employment and Training Administration lists these as examples of occupations that require vocational training:

  1. Electrical and electronics repairers, powerhouse, substation and relay: The May 2009 median salary for California was $79,100 with projected growth at 36 percent from 2008 to 2018. This compares to 12 percent estimated growth for this career nationwide.
  2. Emergency medical technicians and paramedics: The May 2009 median annual salary was $30,000 with projected growth of 31 percent between 2008 and 2018, much higher than the 9 percent estimated growth rate for this career nationally.
  3. Skin care specialists: The May 2009 median annual salary in California was $32,100 with 29 percent projected growth between 2008 and 2018.

Why consider trade schools in California?

Attending trade schools in the Golden State, you can surf or ski in your free time, or visit places such as the Golden Gate Bridge, Hollywood, or Yosemite and Sequoia National Parks. California is famous for manufacturing, agriculture, biotechnology and other high-tech industries, not to mention the wide array of professional sports teams.

The state's 2009 median household income was $56,100, as reported by CareerOneStop. Finding your new job could be a challenge, as the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports the state's unemployment rate was 12.5 percent for December 2010, but advanced skills from trade schools in California could give you a leg up in a difficult job market.
