When most people think of vocational training, they think of construction jobs. However, there are a myriad of other vocations that are in need of trustworthy, hard-working, well-trained employees. At OKAW, we provide up-to-date relevant instruction for both traditional as well as emerging vocations! For example, one of the fields currently in the highest of demand for employees is computer ands information technology (CIT). 

"Employment in computer and information technology occupations is projected to grow 13 percent from 2020 to 2030, faster than the average for all occupations. These occupations are projected to add about 667,600 new jobs. Demand for these workers will stem from greater emphasis on cloud computing, the collection and storage of big data, and information security.

The median annual wage for computer and information technology occupations was $91,250 in May 2020, which was higher than the median annual wage for all occupations of $41,950."

Our Computer Aided Drafting (CAD) and Computer Technology & Networking courses are specifically designed to help our students be the most viable candidates for this ever-growing void in our future workforce.
