With the rising cost of education, career and technical colleges are quickly becoming a more viable option to receive training and education needed for a career or skilled trade. While some occupations will always require advanced degrees, many employers are embracing graduates of career and technical colleges.
There is an emerging trend among prospective students who are questioning the four-year educational process traditional colleges and universities have to offer. Specifically, many are dissatisfied with the idea of taking two to three years of general education courses in order to get into their specific area of interest. For these individuals, a four-year plan can cost much more than they are willing to spend and takes far too long to accomplish.
This is the exact opposite for career and technical colleges like Pinnacle Career Institute (PCI). From the very start, students begin to learn about their area of interest and receive hands-on training. As a result, students can complete certification in a year, six months or even in one month depending on the area of study. For example, PCI has recently introduced a new four week program to get certified as a cell tower technician. This is very enticing for individuals looking to start an exciting career with great earning potential.
Although a career and technical college may not be for everyone, it certainly offers the education and the hands-on learning needed to kick-start your career.
