JUNIORS and SENIORS: What is Trade School?
If you enjoy hands-on, experiential learning and seeing the results of your hard work, a trade profession might be a great fit for you! Trades are highly skilled jobs that require focused, specialized training - like plumbing, carpentry, IT, cosmetology, and so much more. These types of trades are typically taught through trade schools. Not sure what a trade school is? This page will tell you everything you need - including why they’re important, where to find high-quality trade programs near you, and why trade schools can be a great alternative to a 4-year college education for some students.
