WELCOME TO THE SKILLED TRADES


Careers built on skill + tech.

You can make a great living — and rewarding life — by using your mind and your hands.

The skill you pick up through classes, apprenticeships and real-life experiences. The tech makes the work easier and more precise — adding computerization, software, even robotics.

We offer FIVE industries … and FIVE skilled trades in each. They represent jobs in Georgia that pay well … in areas that are growing.

They’re interesting careers, and they need people like you … right now. The trades give you freedom and choice to build a good life.

The work you do in the trades leaves a mark on the world: What you build and repair is seen and felt by other people.

The skills you gain are yours for a lifetime. No one can ever take them away.

Explore the trades on this site. And sign up – we’ll send you summaries of the careers that interest you most.

Making stuff has never been more fun. Skilled jobs are everywhere in manufacturing, from the machine shop to the factory floor! Modern manufacturing is incredibly high-tech. Nowadays, robots do most of the boring parts. So the people working on the factory floor need to be smart and creative, tech-savvy and super-skilled.
