High School Trades Careers

Not everyone was meant to be in an office, sit at a desk all day, or do the same thing over and over. For people that like to work with their hands, see their accomplishments in massive view, or do well with change, a career in a skilled trade is a great option!

Why Choose a Career in the Trades?

Say hello to exciting hands-on learning!

From building skyscrapers to crafting culinary delights, the trades offer a diverse range of careers to match your interests and skills.

The Trades Careers program allows you to explore the trades while earning high school credits, apprenticeship hours and safety certifications. Upon completion, you’ll be ahead of those without the Trades Careers training and can begin your full apprenticeship right away. For you – this means on-the-job training while working and obtaining a solid income with nothing but endless possibilities for your future.
