If you want more for your life, it may be time to continue your education. Here are 25 reasons you should go back to school to continue your education.

According to the United States Census Bureau, 90 percent of Americans have a minimum of a high school diploma. Similarly, a report by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, shows that citizens who have technical training, like electrical technicians, medical assistants and nurse aides, have the highest projection for job growth over the next 10 years. These facts alone provide solid reasons to continue your education.

Those who hold certificates above the high school diploma are more likely to earn higher pay and possess greater satisfaction with life. And the best part is, no matter where you are in your life right now, it’s never too late to continue your education. 

What to do as a career is one of the most important decisions you will ever make. It’s best if you can choose a profession where you enjoy how you spend your days. 

The best way to do that is to enroll in a program where you will get the education and the training you need to get a job involving advanced skills. 

That’s why continuing your education is so important. Education is the key to the life you deserve. Here are 25 great reasons you should continue your education: 

  1. To Get A Better Job

    Jobs that require specialized services require training and in many cases, certification. To learn skills needed to satisfy these jobs you must enroll in a post-secondary school.

  2. To Further Your Education and Reach Personal Goals

    If you’ve always had the dream of getting more education, it’s never too late. Obtaining the credentials needed for a job helps you meet your personal goals 

  3. Make More Money 

    Statistics show that those who possess only a high school diploma, earn an average of $30,000 per year. Education and training bring that number up to about $42,000 per year, at least.

  4. Become Certified And More Qualified At Work

    In order to become certified for jobs like an electrical technician or automotive service technician, a certification exam must be passed. Most exams require hands-on-training before someone can even apply to take them. An accredited school will provide that training.

  5. Secure Your Future By Gaining Competitive Skills

    Potential employees with training and certification are more attractive to employers. When internal cuts happen within businesses, those with higher education and knowledge are more often considered “necessary” to the company and spared. 

  6. Live A Better Life Style

    Better schools, nicer homes, and newer cars are all available to those earning the money to support them. Getting your education makes life better for you and your family.

  7. Finish A Degree That You Abandoned In The Past

    Not finishing a degree you started will hang over your head for the rest of your life. Continuing your education is the only way to put that regret behind you.

  8. To Challenge Yourself and Gain Confidence

    If you don’t try, you’ll never know how much you can achieve in this life. You deserve the confidence you will build once you meet the challenge.  

  9. Social Networking

    When you attend classes, you make new friends. As your lifestyle changes, so does your social network. Having social contact with like-minded people is key to happiness. 

  10. Improve Your Business Network

     You become more attractive to businesses when you have the education and skills to do more advanced technical jobs. 

  11. Open Doors To New Opportunities

    When you are more qualified, you have options as far as jobs go. Technical training and certifications bring with them the opportunities for advancement such as higher certifications and better jobs within companies.

  12. Improve Your Discipline 

    Going to school and taking classes teaches you to stay on top of your goals. Goal-setting is important every day if you are going to do well at your job. The discipline to achieve your work goals is an invaluable lesson.

  13. To Become A Nurse Aide 

    You must have knowledge and experience to provide clinical care as a certified nurse aide. Those in this field have the opportunity to work in home health, hospice care, private practices, hospitals, and nursing and rehabilitation centers.   

  14. Learn About Business Administration 

    Individuals who are trained in various business administration skills is essential to any size company. They handle anything from the fundamentals of business-related finances, administrative tasks and more.

  15. To Become A Welder

    Welders are always needed in industry and construction. A potential welder must learn about welding safety, machine setup, and metallurgy. Shielded Metal Arc Welding (stick welding), Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW/ MIG), Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW/ TIG), and Flux Cored Arc Welding (FCAW) all require specialized training.

  16. To Become A Commercial Motor Vehicle Operator

    You need to know more than just how to drive a car to be successful as a Commercial Motor Vehicle Operator. Training is required to learn about driving, backing and parking a large OTW vehicle, plus safety precautions and proper vehicle reporting. A CDL driver’s license also requires study and hands-on driving time.   

  17. To Become An HVAC Technician

    With construction on the rise, so are the jobs for Heating, Ventilation, and Air-Conditioning (HVAC) technicians and installers. Those wanting to do the job must learn to install, maintain, troubleshoot, restore and repair temperature control equipment. 

  18. To Become An Automotive Service Technician

     There’s a lot to learn to become an Automotive Service Technician (car mechanic). Classes train auto technicians to work as full-service, general service, or quick lube technicians. Sitting for ASE certification requires hands-on learning.  

  19. To Become An Electrical Technician 

    An electrical technician (electrician) is highly skilled and requires several advanced certifications. The only route to this career is through higher education.

  20. To Become A Cosmetologist

    Cosmetology jobs will never cease to exist. Because this field requires licensing, the best way to get started is to enroll in a school of higher learning. Cosmetologists who go to beauty school, must learn about hair cutting and styling, skincare, nail techniques, makeup application, waxing and hair removal, and operating and managing a salon.  

  21. To Be A Medical Billing and Coding Specialist

     The field of medical billing and coding is expected to experience growth in the next ten years. Courses revolve around certification exams for Billing and Coding Specialist, Electronic Health Records Specialist, and Medical Administrative Assistant. 

  22. Become A Computer Support Specialist

    The IT market is growing. Certifications needed to work as a computer support specialist include IC3, CompTIA, and NETWORK PRO. Education and hands-on training are a requirement for passing these exams.

  23. Become A Pharmacy Technician

    Pharmacy Technicians are skilled in computer applications, pharmacy operations, and prescription processing. Studies will include pharmacology, FDA drug safety, and pharmacy procedures. 

  24. Become An Administrative Assistant

  25. To Satisfy Your Passion for Change

“When my youngest child graduated from high school, I told my husband that it was my time. I went back to school to change careers after spending 37 years in the business field. At SCI, the instructors are professional, and they care about what they are teaching you, as well as expect you to give 100% in return. I had problems understanding how to draw in syringes and give injections. I requested extra help from a knowledgeable instructor, and I was able to receive one-on-one training. Today, I draw injections for approximately 100 patients each week. I am very confident in what I’ve learned. SCI has given me the chance to do what I always wanted to do. Thank you for my education. I am doing wonderful.”
