Trade Schools in South Carolina

Although hit hard by the 2008 economic crisis, South Carolina has steadily fought back and reduced the unemployment rate significantly in the past two years. The state has a diverse economy to thank for this improvement, led by industries such as agriculture and fishing, textiles, and the military. Tourism currently brings the most money to this Southern Atlantic State, and it's easy to see why: With its geography spanning the Blue Ridge Mountains and temperate beaches, the charming cities, and an exciting array of college sports, South Carolina proves an appealing destination for all types of people. What this means for students considering trade schools in South Carolina is that technical programs related to the military, nuclear and tourism industries (for example, systems installation, airframe and powerplant technology, and hotel management) may yield the biggest payoffs.
