Instructor and students in training at NYADI The College of Automotive and Diesel Technology.

A typical college education consists of four years of courses that cover a variety of subjects. The degree that a student ultimately ends up with tends to be somewhat broad in scope, allowing them to pursue various careers within many different industries.

Vocational schools, such as NYADI The College of Automotive and Diesel Technology, offer a more focused, skill-based education for students who want to pursue a specific professional trade career.

The Benefits of a Vocational School

The following are a few of the benefits of attending a vocational school such as NYADI The College of Automotive and Diesel Technology instead of going to a more traditional college or university:

  • Vocational programs take less than two years to complete - Most vocational schools allow students to graduate after two years or less. If you know exactly what you want to do, then you won't have to waste an additional two years on general education courses. You'll be able to join the workforce much sooner.
  • Vocational schools are more affordable - Because vocational school programs generally take two years or less to complete, you'll spend less money completing the program.
  • Vocational schools offer more flexibility - It's easier for students who have personal obligations to attend a vocational school. This is because many vocational schools offer weekend classes, night classes and online classes.
  • Vocational schools are less restrictive - Colleges and universities look at student grades and test scores before admitting them. Vocational schools typically teach students a specific trade, which is not dependent on what you scored on your SATs. The most that a vocational school requires is a high school diploma or a GED along with a minimum age requirement of 16 or 17. Students who do not have the equivalent of a high school diploma will often be required to pass an entrance exam.
