Trade Schools in Tennessee

Like many Southern states, Tennessee's economic foundation was built on agriculture. And although the economy has since diversified considerably, agriculture--specifically soybeans, cotton and cattle--remains a big player thanks to the large tracts of arable land that still cover the state. Twentieth-century developments brought variety to Tennessee's workforce, and, in addition to agriculture, today's leading industries include health care, legal services and tourism, due to the state's beautiful scenery and musical capitals of Nashville and Memphis. All this means good news for students considering trade schools in Tennessee. Whether you're interested in training to be a nurse, paralegal or hotel manager, Tennessee's vocational programs can prepare you for an economy that needs skilled workers of varied talents.
