Associations supporting technical schools[edit | edit source]
The Association for Career and Technical Education is the largest U.S. education association dedicated to promoting career and technical education for youth and adults.
United States military[edit | edit source]
Technical school is also the term used in the United States Armed Forces for the job specific training given immediately after recruit training. Though similar to the training provided by a two-year college, the training is much more concise, eschewing any coursework outside the minimum necessary to begin working in the chosen career field; additionally, the training is more time intensive, often including more than 9 in-class hours per day. Military technical school is typically 1 to 3 months in duration, though some schools are as short as 2 weeks or as long as 2 years.
Upon graduation, military technical school recruits are qualified only as apprentices and must work under supervision until they have completed a more extensive on-the-job training program. Many times the military training can be converted to standard university credits, leaving the graduating recruit with only a few general education requirement courses (such as speech or composition) to complete in order to receive the more traditional 2-year technical school diploma referenced above.
