Find out for yourself why you need to learn Trade Skills rather than attend a Four Year College!
Remember the housing bubble that collapsed in 2008? The causes look obvious in hindsight: easy credit overheated demand that lead to unsustainably high prices with catastrophic results. The same thing is happening in college education. In The College Myth, Gene Kelly exposes higher education as an over-inflated bubble built on misinformation and debt. The truth is that college is not necessary to achieve success, and in many cases, it is an obstacle to success. The College Myth might just be the pin that bursts this bubble. In the 21st century, the sure-fire route to financial success is learning the trades. Kelly shows how colleges are failing our young people by not teaching them the skills that will be in-demand in the 21st century as the United States fixes its infrastructure, and instead piling debt on students while preparing them for “knowledge-worker” jobs that are disappearing fast.

Why the Trades?
Knowledgeable workers are in high demand in a workplace hungry for trade technicians of all kinds. Yet, vast numbers of individuals with decades of trade experince are aging and retiring at alarming rates. And, they are doing so without replacement skilled workers. Why? Because, rather than considering the trades as a viable career path, our culture drives people to earn expensive college degrees that land them in debt without a job to pay it back because their skills don’t match the jobs available. Are you too missing the opportunity for rewarding careers in the trades? Find out more…
Why Do You Need to Know More than Just One Trade?
When people think about the trades, several jobs immediately come to mind – carpenter, electrician, plumber or welder, for example. But opportunities in the trades abound, and are much more extensive and diverse, demanding knowledge from more than one or even two trades. From building maintenance technician to plant manager, handyman, service technician to commercial property manager – and so many more. You need knowledge that is deep and wide in order to make the most of these opportunities.
Training in Multiple Trades gets you:
Skilled trades play an important role in our economy and our society. Think about it ... skilled trade workers touch almost every aspect of our lives. They build and maintain the homes we live in and the facilities we work in. They work in construction, manufacturing, mining, oil and gas, and even tourism. They maintain the electrical systems that power our computers and heat our houses. The US and Canada depend on the work of skilled tradespeople working in the designated trades to keep our countries working.
With hundreds of skilled trade careers to choose from, there are opportunities available to suit almost any interest. Knowledgeable tradespeople are in demand and, as the baby-boom generation retires, that demand is only going to increase. Shortages of skilled trade workers are being reported across sectors and across both the US and Canada, and the competition to attract talent is growing.
