I'm graduating this year from high school, and am looking to go into trade school...maybe. Do they care? I've heard so many different things about how all they want is your money, it's not worth it, etc. All I want to know is do employers care more about experience or certifications? Professional shops, probably, but what is the possibility of getting paid the same in other shops? Do you make enough to quickly pay off your debt? I would be frustrated if an employer doesn't care about where I went, only if I can do the job. I've learned a lot, and am a fast learner, I pick up stuff really quick. Suggestions?
