Norfolk (VA) Vocational Schools, Trade Schools and Technical Schools

Norfolk, Virginia is often considered part of a larger area known as the Hampton Roads metropolitan area, consisting of Norfolk, Newport News, and Virginia Beach. This historical region sits on the gorgeous and lively Chesapeake Bay. Norfolk and the surrounding towns see plenty of tourists and visitors every year, and it is home to Norfolk Naval Base--one of the largest naval bases anywhere. Needless to say, careers in tourism, government, importing/exporting, and general business are plentiful in Norfolk. Norfolk trade schools offer courses and programs that can launch your career in any of these diverse fields.

Norfolk Trade Schools Can Help You Sail into a New Career

In 2009, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), Norfolk was home to over 233,000 people, with a mean annual wage for all occupations around $40,000. Those in business and financial operations earned a mean annual wage over $62,000 and those in tourism management earned about $58,000. There are homes available for any budget in Norfolk, from quaint condos to expansive waterfront homes. The median home value in Norfolk is about $197,000. In September 2010, Virginia had a 6.5 percent unemployment rate, which was much lower than the United States' unemployment rate as a whole, at 9.2 percent. Job growth in Norfolk grew by about 1.4 percent between 2009 and 2010. This shows the stability and steadiness of jobs in the area, as many places in the U.S. saw declines rather than increases in jobs.

If the thought of a bustling port city with plenty of American and military history ingrained in its downtown streets and architecture appeals to your senses, Norfolk may be the place for you. Whether you seek online or on-campus diploma, degree, or certificate programs, Norfolk trade schools can offer you courses and training in everything from computer programming to health care, from accounting to cosmetology. Check out programs at Norfolk trade schools today.
