Las Vegas Vocational Schools, Trade Schools and Technical Schools

Las Vegas Vocational Schools, Trade Schools and Technical Schools

It's no secret that gaming and tourism have long been major drivers of the economy of Las Vegas, but in recent years the city also has become a strong alternative for technical companies that don't wish to locate in Silicon Valley. One example is Switch, a Las Vegas company that provides data storage for heavyweights such as Pixar, eBay, Dell and Cisco.

Las Vegas offers students several options when choosing certificate or diploma programs. There are many different leisure, hospitality and culinary programs from which to choose, and the city also has a host of technical and trade schools that cover a wide range of employment training for business and professional support careers to service-based roles in health care and education.

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports the following numbers in key Las Vegas industries in the first quarter of 2014:

  • Leisure and hospitality: 267,600 jobs
  • Construction: 40,000 jobs
  • Government: 96,700 jobs
  • Manufacturing: 20,900 jobs
  • Trade, transportation and utilities: 160,700 jobs

Las Vegas population and economy

The population of Clark County in 2013 was estimated at 2.02 million, the U.S. Census Bureau reports, while the combined populations of Las Vegas and North Las Vegas was around 820,000. The massive hotels in Las Vegas stay connected through an intricate network of communications-based technologies and requires thousands of trade and technical jobs to keep these properties operating smoothly. Many thousands more work in gaming, construction or hospitality careers. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics provides median hourly wages in 2013 for some of the hottest and fastest-growing jobs in Las Vegas:

  • Database administrators -- $42.58
  • Network and computers systems administrators -- $37.19
  • Accountants and auditors -- $26.75
  • Gaming supervisors -- $26.50
  • Construction laborers -- $16.23
  • Human resources assistants -- $15.55

The appropriate certificate or diploma from a Las Vegas vocational school is designed to help prepare students to take advantage of these and many other opportunities.
