Trade School Benefits

Advantages of Attending New Castle School of Trades

When planning how to start your career it is important to make good decisions early on as these will pave the way for success as a skilled tradesman. Attending a trade school is an excellent way to prepare oneself for a career in the trades. There are several paths one can take when entering a new career but attending a trade school can provide an individual with the unique benefits for a lasting occupation.

Structured Course of Study

Trade school instructors will follow a certified and nationally recognized curriculum when providing technical training. One of the great advantages of trade schools is that the instructors are real teachers, as well as industry professionals. They understand how to teach new workers theory and application both in an interesting and understandable way. They will ensure you receive instruction in all aspects of your trade without having to rely only on available work.

The learning opportunities offered by real job sites will also be limited. A good mentor will try to give you broad instruction, but he only has what is at hand to work with. This can lead to gaps in one’s training and experience.

Hands-on Experience

Working in a skilled trade means using your mind and body together to accomplish tasks. While attending a trade school like NCST, students will receive hands-on training along with classroom study. This will expose them to what doing the work is really like without time constraints or concerns about wasting material. Students are given the time and opportunity to test, try, and master each step of the process with a skilled instructor alongside them.

Fast-Track to a New Career

Most new tradesmen are anxious to get into the workforce so they can increase their skills, build their experience, and start making money. The time-saving benefits of trade schools are significant. You can earn a specialized AST degree from attending a trade school and two or three years of real work experience in the time it would take you to complete an apprenticeship or college degree. This means getting to work at a high level quicker and making money faster.

Camaraderie and Networking

Good trade schools can keep classes small allowing students to become well acquainted with each other. This allows peers to learn from one another, as well as their instructors. It is a bonus that classmates may become coworkers in the future. Those who go on to work at other companies could represent valuable networking relationships for your future.

Invest in Yourself

Deciding on a career is an important choice and the best opportunity you will ever have to invest in yourself. You will always be your own greatest asset, so it only makes sense to give yourself all the advantages of trade schools and what they have to offer. New Castle School of Trades looks forward to hearing from you and helping you to learn the skills you need to pursue a rewarding new career in the skilled trades.
