What's life like when you attend trade schools in Maine?

Maine is no stranger to quality-of-life accolades. Portland, Maine, received top honors in Forbes magazine's "America's Most Livable Cities" in 2009. The ranking was based on several key quality-of-life barometers such as income growth (6.3 percent from 2004 to 2009), low unemployment (5.9 percent in 2009), and low crime statistics. Even though the cost of living index (102.1) was slightly higher than the national average (100), the income growth outweighed the cost of living challenge. But that's not all. Bon Appetit magazine dubbed Portland as 2009's "Foodiest Small Town in America." The U.S. Bureau of the Census estimated the Maine per capita income as $36,745 for 2009.

There's something for everyone in Maine, from the cosmopolitan atmosphere of the southern coastal towns to the miles of farms and forests in  the north. One of the trade schools in Maine can help you learn the skills needed for success in this state's budding career paths.
