School Slam Lists Thousands Of Trade Schools In The United States


Description: Oceanside, CA. September 28, 2010. School Slam is a new Trade School Directory that lists most of the Trade Schools in the US. As of now there are over 8,000 listings and more could be added in the future.

With the economy the way it is and people with families to feed, people are realizing they need to take some training at one of the Technical Colleges quick. Many of these people can’t wait 4 years until they finish college just to get a job. What’s even worse, is that in many fields people can’t get a decent job without a Masters Degree. is a Trade School Directory that was just launched in the middle of September 2010 to allow people to search thousands of schools that will educate them and give them a legitimate trade within 6-18 months. For example a Doctoral Degree in Psychology takes about 8 years and the starting pay for this degree is about $18.00 per hour. However a Diesel Mechanic gets paid about $21.00 per hour and you can train for this career in 12-18 months.

This is just one example of the power of Vocational Programs. The other advantage of Trade Schools is that they are prone to be recession proof. Many of these trades are taught in “Evergreen Markets” which means markets that will thrive in spite of the economy. For example, if you need your heater fixed people will get it fixed no matter what, rather than freezing at night. Another example is folks get sick regardless of the economy, so there will always be a high demand for nurses. These are the kinds of skills offered at Trade Colleges all over the US. Nursing, Culinary, Legal, Dental, Electrical, Tax Preparation and other types of skills are offered at these types of schools.

“Jeff West and I are very excited about offering a US Based Search Platform where anyone can search for the Vocational Programs they want by City and State, or use the search box at the top of our site to search for a specific school they are interested in. It’s our way of giving back and providing true value during this recession” says Brian Garvin, one of the owners of School Slam. People need a solid skill to make a decent income these days, and Career Schools offer a viable alternative to a 4 year college degree. When someone attends Trade School they really learn the meat and potatoes of what they go there for so they can learn right off the bat, verses having to take years of extra English, Math, Arts & Social Sciences.

The reason Jeff & Brian think School Slam is so special, is because they feel over the years it will help so many people find the right career path and will enable these folks to work in a career where they not only get paid decent, but get respect for having usable, real-world skills that are in high demand right now. Jeff & Brian also invite people to visit their website at so they can leave their comments, whether positive or negative, on any Trade School that they have any knowledge about. Doing this will let others know how good or bad a Career College in their area is and keep the internet community informed. It could also help prevent someone from making a bad decision.
