Diploma Programs for Careers in the Skilled Trades Field
With the current shortage of workers within the Skilled Trades field, those trained in this type of program are finding themselves in high demand. In fact, employment in various skilled trades is expected to grow at a faster rate than other occupations. At Dorsey Schools, we are answering the call by offering an HVAC Systems Technician diploma program and an Electrical Technician diploma program that are specially designed to help students gain the abilities, talents and educational foundation they need in these skilled trades – all in one year or less.
In order to obtain the best understanding of the job and its responsibilities, skilled trades programs usually include a combination of classroom education and hands-on practice. The Skilled Trades programs at Dorsey Schools have lab settings that are designed to replicate real world occupational settings. Within these skilled trade settings, students are given the opportunity to apply and practice the skills they are learning in an environment that is similar to what they will encounter once they are working in the field. This is especially valuable because it provides the student with exposure on what they may encounter on a day-to-day basis in either of these occupations.
Do you enjoy working with your hands? Are you good at fixing things? Do you like to solve problems or tackle a challenge? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, training for a new career in the Skilled Trades at Dorsey Schools may be for you.
