Vocational-Technical schools offer: - Hands-on experience - classrooms that represent how work is done on the actual job - instructors who are experienced in the subject in order to teach the necessary skills in the shortest time possible - assist with job placement upon completion of training - students with this training have an advantage in learning new skills at the workplace since their training has provided basic thinking and problem solving skills MORE INFORMATION ON SPECIFIC VOCATIONAL/TECHNICAL COLLEGES CAN BE FOUND ON THE FOLLOWING WEBSITE OR BY CONTACTING THE ADMISSIONS OFFICE AT THE SCHOOL.
