Questions to Ask Before Enrolling in Tech School

The education you receive at a technical school can lead to a certificate, diploma, or degree in a variety of programs such as automotive technology, computer programming, and business administration to name a few.

1. Take the time to think about it!

You’re probably at that point in life where you’re thinking about what the next step in life will be. Well, don’t feel bad. You’re not alone! Now is the time to think carefully about what you want to do in life by utilizing the internet, talking with a counselor, or representatives of educational programs you’re interested in.

2. Use available resources

Using resources, such as the One-Stop Career Center, can be a great start in helping to jump-start your career. Career Onestop is a tool that can provide up-to-date information on your training needs.

3. Inquire about Certifications

You’ll also need to check if any special certifications are required to land the job of choice. And, while you’re at it, it’s not a bad idea to find out the percentage rates of graduates from an institution. Many applicants will take it one step further, and call the employment office or human resources department of a company to find out what kind of a license is needed for employment in a career field.

It’s important to note that only schools accredited by an agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education are able to enroll students who receive federal financial aid.

4. Know the cost of an education

Paying for your education is bound to be a major decision when considering a program. At this phase of the research game, you’ll want to key in on the cost of the training, and an Admissions Rep can be of great help in this area. Ask what a program will cost before student aid, and then find out what it would cost after student aid.

Above all though, it’s too your best advantage to check with an Admissions Representative. They’ll be there to help, and are more than wiling to answer any questions you might have.
