Technical Training courses
Vocational and technical programs are shorter, more focused training and educational programs that prepare their students for immediate employment. Although both types of schools are considered trade or career schools, they do vary a bit in their focus. According to the U.S. Department of Education, technical schools teach the theory and science behind the occupation, while vocational schools take a more hands-on approach to teaching the skills needed to do the job successfully.
Technical, community or junior colleges offer technical courses and programs, and these usually result in an associate degree, pre-bachelor's technical degree or certificate. Technical programs usually focus on studying books and manuals for computer-oriented training and careers.
Vocational courses and programs often result in a certificate of completion. This type of program focuses on teaching a specific trade with a hands-on approach, like construction, agriculture or health, as well as teaching general employment skills, such as typing.
