Detroit Vocational Schools, Trade Schools and Technical Schools

The port of Detroit, Michigan is home to seven of the world's largest auto manufacturers, so naturally many local jobs are in the fields of trade, transportation, distribution, and manufacturing. To help fill employers' needs, Detroit trade schools offer diploma, certificate, and degree programs focused on training an exemplary work force. Cars, however, are not Detroit's only industry. Employers are always looking for workers skilled in the areas of information technology, health services, and recreation and leisure. Courses at a Detroit technical school or vocational school prepare you to enter one of these growing fields. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) cites May 2008 job figures for these Detroit employment sectors:

  • Education and Health Services. 123,700 jobs
  • Leisure and Hospitality. 78,800 jobs
  • Manufacturing. 67,900 jobs
  • Professional and Business Services. 106,700 jobs
  • Trade, Transportation, and Utilities. 138,100 jobs
