Trade Schools in Michigan

If you're considering an education at trade schools in Michigan, you might want to know which occupations are expected to grow the most between 2008 and 2018. The Department of Labor lists the 25 fastest-growing occupations in Michigan that require an associate degree or vocational training, and 14 of these are related to the health care industry. These careers are expected to experience growth rates between 12 percent and 29 percent, with physical therapist assistant and occupational therapist assistant taking the top two spots; fitness and aerobics instructors and dental hygienists followed close behind. Other Michigan careers with promising futures include veterinary technician or technologist; heating, air conditioning and refrigeration mechanics and installers; environmental science and protection; and civil engineering technicians.

Health care leads economic recovery for students in trade schools in Michigan

The U.S. Census Bureau showed the state population as more than 9.9 million in 2009. The U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis reports that Michigan residents had a per capita income in 2009 of $34,025, lower than the national figure of $39,138. Michigan's economic recovery is slow and still depends heavily on the automobile industry. However, the Senate Fiscal Agency reports that from 1999 to 2009, the state went from being manufacturing-based to an economy where health care services and private education are now dominant.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics estimated that the 2009 mean annual wage for all Michigan occupations was slightly below the national figure at $42,930. Lower Michigan wages are offset by the cost of living, which is also lower than the national figure. Graduates from trade schools in Michigan could find lucrative jobs in the state, particularly in the health care sector.
