Vocational Trade

Workforce Kentucky reports that health care support occupations should experience 24.9 percent growth between 2008 and 2018, which is classified as very fast growth, comparatively. Of the 25 fastest-growing occupations in Kentucky, a whopping 15 are health care-related jobs. The "Kentucky's Occupational Outlook to 2018" publication estimates that more than one-quarter of 2018 projected employment will be in two of the largest occupational groups: office and administration support or sales and related occupations. The same study indicates that obtaining a postsecondary degree offers increased career opportunities, better job security and higher earning potential. As of 2010, those with an associate degree or vocational training earned an average annual wage of $40,500, much higher than those without postsecondary training.
