Trade Schools in Massachusetts

The Department of Labor suggests that several of the 15 fastest-growing occupations in Massachusetts require vocational school training/certification or an associate degree. For these careers, job growth is expected to be from 15 percent to 35 percent between 2008 and 2018. Eight of the occupations are health care related, including medical records technicians; physical therapist assistants; radiation and respiratory therapists; and registered nurses and dental hygienists. Students at trade schools in Massachusetts might also want to consider other in-demand careers, including technician or technology careers in the following fields--veterinary medicine, environmental engineering, surgery, agricultural and food science, and environmental science and protection.

High tech helps economic recovery for graduates of trade schools in Massachusetts

With an economy based primarily on the health care technology, financial services, manufacturing, and technology research and development sectors, Massachusetts is recovering fairly quickly from the recession, primarily due to technology and business development. Tourism is also a major contributor to this New England state's economy. The Census Bureau shows the Massachusetts population at almost 6.6 million in 2009, and the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis estimates a 2009 per capita income of $49,875, which was higher than the national figure of $39,138. The cost of living in Massachusetts, however, is correspondingly high. The Bureau of Labor Statistics lists a 2009 mean annual income of $52,710 for all occupations in Massachusetts, while the national figure was $43,460. A strong economy and high growth in careers that require vocational training can mean great job potential for graduates of trade schools in Massachusetts.
