This book has basic contact information for schools and colleges within the trades and technical skills. I’ve looked around. A book like this doesn’t exist anywhere right now, a book that tries to list most of the community colleges and trades-vocational schools in the United States. I deal with specific profession schools in the next book. A lot of colleges offer career programs that don’t lead to a degree but rather a certificate for the vocational field. Local community colleges often offer many programs in the practical skill occupations. Professional and trade organizations present free or low-cost webinars in addition to their traditional courses available for a fee.

This book has basic contact information for the trades and technical skills including apprenticeship programs and job websites. I cover community colleges and vocational schools in book #2. The trades are really big because they're always there regardless of what high-tech industries come and go. Whenever I go jogging, I always see the plumbing trucks, the electrical trucks, the contractor trucks, the carpet cleaners, window installers, etc. No matter what happens, people always need those basic services. I looked around for an indepth vocational-trades book. I couldn't find one. Here is my attempt at a good comprehensive vocational trades book. Even in the trades, be very wary about what you decide to go to school for. I've had friends spend a few years taking a certain vocational program like electronic technician or computer tech only to end up not being able to find a job in their field.
