A Word on Vocational/ Technical Education

Vocational and technical colleges are opportunities for students to study a specific career field and earn a certificate that will allow them to be eligible for work in that field.

These programs can usually be much shorter and more cost effective than other 2 and 4 year programs, which make them a great option for students who know that they're interested in one of these fields.

When looking for the right technical program for you, make sure to look for programs that are properly accredited to ensure that your certificate will actually allow you to work in the field (there are some non-accredited programs that are very expensive, so beware!).
