3 Reasons Why You Should Choose a Trade

December 6th, 2018

When you were in high school, many of you may have had teachers that never talked about careers in the trades much. It’s too bad because there’s actually a lot of perks to doing trade work that not even a four-year college education gets you.

Pennco Tech offers everything from HVAC training to Medical Assistant school in Bucks County, and is dedicated to giving you the training you need to get the job you want, in the end helping you earn the salary you deserve. Check out the advantages of going into a career in the trades:

1. Find a Lifelong Career
One of the benefits of learning a trade is that it will give you skills that you can rely on throughout your lifetime. Whether you specialize in HVAC repair, auto repair, or plumbing, you will always have a practical skill that can be used in any city, town, or neighborhood you choose to live in. By becoming certified at Pennco Tech, you’ll always have the qualifications you need to work where you want and in the field of your choice.

2. Take Advantage of the Market
There was once a time when high schools offered shop classes that taught students skills in metalwork, woodwork, and autobody. Unfortunately, most high schools have not offered such courses for a number of years, with long-term negative consequences. As a result of the lack of exposure to such trades, there has now been a 20-year shortage of trade technicians, leaving many businesses struggling to find workers with the necessary skills. With such a shortage in the market, getting certified in a particular trade will give you a strong advantage when it’s time to find employment.

3. Get Certified—Fast
Unlike a traditional college degree, becoming certified in a trade will not take you 4-6 years to complete, wasting precious years of your life while also plunging you into student debt. With Pennco Tech, you can get the certification you need to start working in a year, while still earning the same amount or even more money than many of your peers off at university.

I enjoyed all my teachers. They made it interesting and challenging. I enjoyed going back to school at the age of 48! Career Services was a big help to me. Danielle was great. She helped me with my resume and showed me how to apply. I got the job with Dietz and Watson! Pennco Tech was the right choice for me as I get ready to start my career.
