How to Pick a Training School

Taylor Karl

In a 2019 survey, 41% of young Americans said they would choose a trade or vocational school over college for career opportunities and pay potential. As more people look to these options to further their careers, more and more schools are breaking ground. With so many new and established training options to choose from, picking the right school can be incredibly difficult. We have compiled a list of questions and topics you should look into when you are choosing a trade or vocational school.

What Are the Admissions Requirements?

Every school has admission requirements that you, as a student, will have to meet. These requirements can serve as the first step in weeding out some of the potential schools on your list. United Training Academy (UTA) requires students to be at least 18 years of age and complete an entrance exam. Additional requirements include proof of HS Diploma, college transcripts, or proven ability to obtain a satisfactory score on the approved entrance exam.

What Are the Facilities Like?

Depending on your situation, you might have a preference on class type. With COVID still playing a part, you will have to weigh the options the school is currently offering. For example, United Training Academy has state-of-the-art facilities made to fit all of your needs as a student. From desktops to lecture-style classrooms, UTA offers all the tools you need to have a successful experience.

Student Success and Testimonials

Success plays a huge factor in picking the right school. Reading reviews and testimonials of past students can encourage you to know you are making the right decision. Even though most trade school programs are 9-7 months long, it is still a big commitment to make and you want to ensure you are making the right decision. Hearing from real students can help with that!
