Carol’s Answer

It depends on what trade you're seeking a degree or certification for. Often times you can find shorter programs to start entry level work sooner rather than longer term 2 year associate or 4 year bachelor degrees. The longer programs prepare you for more demanding jobs, often with better pay. But some times doing a short term program and working your way up with experience in the time someone is getting a 4 year degree makes more sense (potentially with comparable pay). Additionally you can start with a short term program or certification and then decide to go through a longer program, if say you wanted to get into engineering.

Christy’s Answer

If you're thinking about going to trade school, remember that the duration of the course can change based on the particular trade you're excited about. Unlike the usual four-year college degrees, trade school courses are usually quicker. Most of them can be finished in just a few months to two years, depending on how focused and intense the lessons are. While some unique trades might need longer courses, trade school is mainly created to prepare you for a job in a shorter period compared to a four-year college degree. I hope this information guides you in choosing the right school for you.
