A tradesman or skilled tradesman is a manual worker in a particular trade or craft requiring skill (i.e., the "skilled trades").
After graduation from school at the age of fifteen to nineteen (depending on type of school), students start an apprenticeship in their chosen professions.
“Finding and training dedicated workers is necessary to growing both a business and an economy."
TIP: Your local unemployment office can connect you to all the legitimate apprenticeship programs locally.
This is a list of community colleges or current baccalaureate-granting institutions which used to be known as a community colleges, junior colleges, or technical schools.
TIP: Public community colleges are the most affordable place to start your education in the trades or earn a certification. At approximately $100 an hour in most locations, public community colleges offer a very affordable way to earn a certification. Beware of the private colleges teaching the trade certifications at much higher costs, as the quality is much lower than public colleges and some private schools are defrauding their students.

Should I take shop classes in high school? Do I need to know drafting? With a little planning, you can step right into a good paying job quickly after completing high school or GED.
