Questions to Ask Technical & Trade Schools

If you are looking for a hands-on learning experience in a specific career, a trade or technical school may be a good choice for you. To ensure you get the most out of your education, there are some questions you should ask a vocational school before you decide to attend.

  • What accreditations does the school have?
    It is important that the vocational school you attend is accredited, so you do not spend your time and money on training that will not lead to a meaningful degree or certification. It is a good idea to ask what institutions will accept credits from the school in case you want to transfer to another school in the future.

  • What certifications or licensing does the program result in?
    It is good to know that the classes you will be taking result in the proper certifications for your career. For careers in cosmetology or construction you must be licensed in order to offer your services. It is important to know that at the end of your education you will be properly licensed to begin your career.

  • What is the technical or trade school's job placement rate and does the school offer any job placement assistance to graduates?
    Knowing a school's job placement rate will help you estimate the likelihood that an education from that school will lead to a career. If almost all of the students that graduate from a school find work, it is likely that you will find work when you complete your training.

  • How much will it cost to complete your studies?
    It is important to learn the total cost to attend the school, so you can make sure it is within your budget. In addition to tuition costs, there may be fees for books, supplies, special clothing, and administrative costs that you will want to know about.

    Students aim to learn, especially if it will help them find better jobs. If you're looking to work for a vocational school, there are several positions open. The most numerous job available at a trade school is that of the instructor, though administration and custodial positions may also be available for physical locations.

    In order to teach at any college, you have to first be a master in the particular career you plan on instructing about. If you're a medical technology trainer, you should have work experience as well as a decent amount of technical knowledge on the subject. You'll also have to have a background in education, possibly a university degree of some sorts, along with the various education certifications required in order to teach students. The more experience and training you have, the more likely you'll be hired for a position. You'll need to map out the courses you wish to teach and get them approved by the technical institute.

    When working with public vocational institutions, you may be able to instruct classes and still operate a business in the trade simultaneously. It all depends on how many career oriented classes you wish to instruct at any given time. Since public schools are often run by the district, their budget is often limited, though they can still offer advanced courses on occasion. Private post secondary programs have higher tuition and often pay their instructors more. Online instructors may have the convenience of working at home on their side, but unless the institution is accredited with a decent reputation, you may find it to be not worth your time.
