With high school graduation right around the corner, many grade twelve students have started making plans for September. But, there are some graduates out there that may be thinking that taking a year off to work while they decide on a career is their best option. After all, who wants to commit to years of education only to find out the career wait for you at the end isn't what you thought it would be?
As the demand for skilled workers rises, so has enrollment in many college trades courses — as has the tuition. But if you find the right trade school, you can save thousands of dollars and years of time. You won't have to enroll in a 2-4 year course that costs $5000+ a year (coming in at $10,000 to $20,000 total). In fact, you can complete a course at a fraction of the cost and be ready to work in just 17 weeks.
The key is to choose the right school to get certified.
