Trade Schools in San Diego

In a region known for its beautiful beaches and bustling tourist industry, it should come as no surprise that many San Diego trade schools cater to students who would like to pursue a degree or certification in the travel industry. It may come as a surprise to people unfamiliar with “America’s Finest City”, however, to learn that San Diego County is also home to the nation’s largest blocks of biotechnology and other high-tech firms. This fact is not lost on the city’s vocational colleges as they cumulatively offer one of the best lineups of technology-based programs in the state.

Job Outlook for San Diego Trade School Graduates

San Diego County is projected to add jobs ahead of the state average over the next 12 months, with the greatest growth coming in fields such as construction, non-durable goods manufacturing, transportation and utilities, information, business services, and leisure and hospitality. The Bureau of Labor Statistics further expects job growth in the Greater San Diego region as a whole with 11% of all local employers stating that they plan to increase staffing in the coming year.

What does all of this mean for the recent graduate from one of the region’s local trade schools, you might ask?  It means that holding a professional certification or degree, and having the type of hands-on work experience that one acquires at a vocational school, bodes very well for anyone seeking a job in one of the aforementioned, highly-popular trade school careers.
