How Do I Get There?
The pathway to a career in Trades, Transport and Operators usually involves a high school diploma or GED equivalent which is often but not always followed by a technical diploma or certificate.
71 trades are apprenticeable which means you can earn a wage while learning an occupation. Some examples of apprenticeable occupations are: Bricklayer, Carpenter, Electrician, Mechanic, Machinist, Plumber, Power Engineer, Powerline Technician and Welder. Most apprenticeships take 2-4 years to complete and will lead to a certification as a skilled journeyman.
