Other ways to prepare for a vocational career
While eAchieve does not have vocational training classes in our curriculum, we do have career-planning resources to help students take the right classes for their trade. Our counselors then work with you to find the right trade or vocational school for your career plan.
Business education classes like Accounting and Entrepreneurship can teach you about running your own business. Additionally, our electives like art, cooking, and music give you a chance to learn something new and prepare for life after high school.
Trade school requirements across the nation
Vocational schools have admissions requirements just like colleges and universities. To get your trade certificate or associates degree, you need to meet those requirements. Use our career-planning resources to make sure you’re ready to apply to a trade school after graduation. Most vocational programs require:
- A high school diploma or GED
- A minimum age of 16 or 17
- Passing grades on an entrance exam
Some trade positons require more training than others. You might need to pass a licensing exam or register with the state as a member of your trade. If you want to move from being a carpenter to an architect, you’ll need a traditional degree. eAcheive Academy prepares our students on getting into a good college.
Trade school programs may take several months to a few years to complete. This is still faster than most traditional four-year degrees.
eAchieve Academy has the resources for anyone working a trade:
