VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Aug 19, 2014) - Of the top 10 jobs expected to be in highest demand in B.C. over the next decade, only two will require a degree. The other eight, which analysts say represent more than 75,000 new jobs, will require career-specific training.
Let's look at how Vancouver Career College can prepare you to make your mark in three of these high-opportunity careers:
Carpenters & Construction Trades:
Nearly 22,000 new jobs for carpenters and construction helpers and labourers are expected to open up in B.C. over the next decade. There's particular demand for females in these growing trades. In just 36 weeks, Vancouver Career College's Carpenter Foundations program will give you the training and hands-on experience you need to become an apprentice carpenter.
Early Childhood Educators:
By 2020, WorkBC estimates there will be two new job openings in this growing field for every qualified early childhood educator. Vancouver Career College's Early Childhood Education and Early Childhood Education Post Basic programs will prepare you for one of these highly rewarding careers.
More than 7,000 new jobs for electricians are expected to become available over the next decade. With B.C.'s prosperity largely dependent on new construction projects, electricians will continue to be in high demand. Graduates of Vancouver Career College's 28-week Construction Electrician Foundation program meet all ITA requirements to become apprentice electricians in B.C.
Bonus: Practical Nurses
Healthcare is expected to be one of B.C.'s fastest-growing industries, and opportunities for practical nurses will be abundant. With two new job openings for every practical nurse by 2020, WorkBC rates job stability and demand growth as "excellent" for practical nurses. To train for a career that's just as rewarding as it is lucrative, check out Vancouver Career College's Practical Nursing program.
