It is difficult to count the number of trade schools and trade school programs in the United States due to the fact that there is not one unifying body for registering trade schools and many high schools and colleges offer trade programs as part of their curriculum. In 2014, there were more than 16 million people enrolled in trade, or vocational, school programs. Many public high school students participate in at least one trade school program before graduating. Many community colleges and state colleges also include vocational programs in their course offerings. If you're looking for a trade school program, consider which program you want to study. Some trade school programs can be completed in as little as one year, though typically they take two years. Trade schools are designed to provide students with the skills necessary to enter the job market immediately upon graduation.
