Vocational Schools Database

Sacramento Vocational Schools, Trade Schools and Technical Schools

Originally a major gold mining town, Sacramento, California quickly developed into a trading hub given its close proximity to San Francisco Bay and numerous inland waterways. Over the years, however, mining has given way to transportation, technology, leisure, hospitality, education, and health as scores of people from around the country flocked to the sunny, temperate climate of California's capital city.

With over 200,000 municipal and state positions available, most graduates of trade schools find that the best employment prospects in Sacramento are with the government, which employs about 10% of the population in some public service capacity. The fastest growing private job sectors are education and health. With a degree or diploma from an accredited, career-specific technical school or trade school, you could position yourself for a career in nursing, EMT, medical billing, or teaching. Because many of the available jobs--both public and private sector--require accreditation or certification, obtaining the proper training, certificate or diploma from one of Sacramento's many trade schools can make you more competitive in today's job market.

Sacramento, CA: Economy in Focus

With the national downturn in the economy, unemployment in the Sacramento Metropolitan area is currently slightly higher than the national average. However, Sacramento is actively courting new industries--life sciences, legal/financial services, and technology--they hope will have a significant economic impact for the Metropolitan area's 2 million residents. Having a diploma, certificate, or degree from one of Sacramento's many technical or vocational schools could help you find a successful career in Sacramento and potentially earn significantly more than the current median annual salary of $50K.
