most skilled trade professions don't require a four year degree, you do
need a mix of talent, experience and possibly a certification or
license. Certifications and licenses often can be obtained in less than a
year. Many skilled trades can be learned through apprenticeships or
short-term training. Tuition assistance also may be available. Some
training programs even offer college credits. Vocational schools, career
colleges and technical schools can save you money and time when
compared to the expense of earning a two or four year diploma.
