This is one of the most important questions for any student who is considering vocational training: How much does trade school cost?
After all, before you commit to any course of study, you need to know what kind of financial investment it requires.
Here’s the short answer: The cost of vocational school varies. Average tuition fees range from about $3,600 to $14,500 per year, but there are wide variations depending on the type of institution you attend and the program you choose. Trade schools (which are also sometimes known as technical institutes, vocational schools, or career colleges) can be either public or private, and their programs can be as short as a few months or as long as two years or more. (For the purposes of this article, we’re defining a trade school as an institution that offers training—lasting two years or less—for hands-on careers.) Some programs cost about $1,000; others cost more than $30,000.
You’ll find more details about these costs above by checking your intended school’s official portals.
Of course, it’s always important to gauge the overall value of a program in order to see whether the cost is worth it. That’s why we want to help you research your options and understand what you’re getting for your money.
