Trade Schools in Hawaii

Tourism remains the state's leading industry and is also growing, but more slowly. Some of the jobs that attending trade schools in Hawaii could lead to include medical assistants, dental technicians, massage therapists, and construction trades like drywallers, tile installers and more.
