It Takes Just a Few Minutes to Choose a New Trade and Start Your Career Below
Vocational School Training Options
There are an abundance of trades to pick from in vocational schools that provide gratifying and high paying careers. Perhaps you have already chosen one that you have for years desired to pursue. For instance, maybe you have always enjoyed working on your car and have considered utilizing that talent to earn a living as a car mechanic. Or maybe a member of the family has had a prosperous career in a certain trade or vocation and you would like to follow in her or his footsteps. Regardless of what your inspiration is for going into a trade, there is likely a program available that will give you the training that you require. Following is just a small representation of the trade school programs that are offered in Wyoming.
- Automotive Technician
- Heating And Air Conditioning (HVAC) Tech
- Truck Driving
- Aircraft Maintenance Tech
- Lab Technician
- Construction Manager
All programs will have varying completion times and costs based upon the trade, credential earned and school. Many of the programs may be completed in a few weeks, while others will call for several months or even 2 or more years of training. Each of these aspects should be considered before selecting a vocation and school.
Trade School Programs Online
Schools available online have become more attractive with Wyoming students and more and more accredited programs are being offered. While online learning is a very convenient and accessible way to obtain a certificate or degree, it may not be the ideal option for every vocation or trade. For example, training to operate a tractor trailer is not something that you can accomplish online, nor is learning how to weld. These are skills that need to be acquired through hands on training and by doing it, not by studying or watching videos. But certain components of the training may be appropriate for online training, such as studying safety and driving regulations for trucking schools or learning about metallurgy or how to read blueprints for welding schools. Many programs will incorporate online education with on-campus lab work, such as for electrician or welding schools. So it is essential to ask before choosing an online program for any vocation if there is an adequate amount of hands-on training allocated to the curriculum. One way to help ensure that a vocational school program is both appropriate for online studying and provides in-depth hands-on training is to verify that it's accredited by a nationally recognized accrediting organization (more on accreditation later). For those vocations that are suitable for training online, it can be a convenient way for students with time constraints to learn a new profession.
