Trade Schools in Nevada

Nevada is mainly known for the world-class vacation destination of Las Vegas, which welcomed more than 36 million visitors in 2009. Thanks to the strong tourism industry in Las Vegas, Reno and elsewhere in the state, positions in the hospitality sector have been within reach for graduates of trade schools in Nevada. Nationwide, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports the creation of 47,000 positions in the hospitality sector in December 2010.

The Nevada Department of Employment, Training and Rehabilitation estimates that there were 299,990 positions in the leisure and hospitality sector as of February 2010. These include culinary arts and food service positions. About 207,100 Nevadans work in trades, transportation and utilities, which includes building inspectors and public utility employees. In February 2010, 135,700 employees worked in the professional and business services sector.

Attending trade schools in Nevada: Student life

Beyond the bright lights of Las Vegas, this state of 2.7 million is predominantly rural, with a large city in the north (Reno) and the nearby small-town capital, Carson City. Nevada trade school students should take time to appreciate the state's natural beauty and man-made wonders, such as Great Basin National Park, Lake Tahoe and Hoover Dam.  You can find trade schools in Nevada's desert south or the mountainous north, and in a number of smaller cities throughout the state.

The BLS showed the mean annual wage in Nevada as $40,400 in 2009. Lodging managers earned a much higher mean annual wage at $74,180, while chefs and head cooks earned $45,630. Trade schools in Nevada can give you the skills and education you need to start your career.
