Some 30 Million jobs in the US that pay an average of $55,000 per year don’t require bachelor’s degrees.1

What career do you truly want? Reaching your ideal career may feel like a distant dream. Many believe that without a bachelor's, they cannot hope to have a fulfilling future. They are mistaken. Plenty of employers are searching for qualified candidates with associate degrees and program specific diplomas.

Anyone who desires a career in the trades should not feel discouraged, but rather empowered by the number of opportunities available.  For example, between 2016 and 2026, the Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates:

  • HVAC mechanics and installers (a program offered at our Maumee Campus) are projected to increase by fifteen percent 2
  • Medical assistants are expected to see an incredible twenty-nine percent increase 3
  • Diagnostic Medical Sonographers and Cardiovascular Technologists and Technicians (a program offered at our Brecksville Campus) are projected to increase by twenty-three percent 4

Our financial aid team can help you find assistance to make our programs even more affordable, while our career services team offers many resources to place you with the right company.
