As a matter of general information, when considering enrolling in a vocational school, determine what type of training is required for your chosen employment field and what the prospects of employment are. Understand if the school will assist in finding you employment after completion and inquire what percentage of its students it has successfully placed. Remember, no school can guarantee employment. You may also wish to check if the school is accredited by a nationally recognized accrediting agency. Finally, fully understand all the terms of the enrollment agreement and the total amount you will be paying. All details, including any oral promises, should be included in a written contract signed by both parties.
