According to May 2011 state occupational employment and wage estimates by BLS, Arizona's fastest-growing industries are office administration, sales, food preparation, education, transportation and healthcare. Most of these jobs want candidates with a minimum of one to two years of Arizona vocational or technical school training. In Phoenix, Tucson, Flagstaff and everywhere in between, an Arizona vocational or technical school may teach you the skills you need to excel in your chosen career path.
The Arizona Chamber of Commerce's 2006 Business Agenda reinforced its commitment to better training and education for its workforce, in order to enhance the state's economy. Local business taxes help pay for workforce training programs, which include vocational and technical school classes. Many Arizona employers may offer education programs for their current employees. The Chamber's agenda also called further attention to the need for trained medical professionals, so jobs in the medical profession seem a particularly safe bet in Arizona. The state particularly needs more qualified nurses, medical assistants, home healthcare workers and administrators.
