Rhode Island Vocational and Technical Schools

Department of Education - Rhode Island

Rhode Island offers vocational school students the classic New England experience--a proud colonial heritage and a thriving industrial economy, located in a quaint seaside state.

The "birthplace of the American Industrial Revolution" still boasts a strong manufacturing industry. The textile production of the 19th century has expanded to include everything from electrical equipment to jewelry. Graduates of Rhode Island's jewelry trade school programs may find a demand for their skills in Providence, a major center for jewelry and silverware design. Rhode Island is also a leader in machinery and fabricated metal production, which is good news for the state's welding and machinist trade school graduates.

According to Rhode Island Department of Labor and Training of 2008-2018 projection, Rhode Island's largest industry, however, is healthcare. Providence is home to a staggering number of medical centers, chief among them Rhode Island Hospital. Vocational school students in healthcare will find no shortage of opportunities here. The tourism industry is also booming in seaside towns like Newport--home of the Newport Jazz Festival.

Rhode Island's mellow attitude and energetic economy make it a well known place for vocational school students.
