Paintless Dent Removal Training - Degrees vs Trades - Which is for you?

For many, going to a four-year degree seems like an automatic choice once they finish high school. And their reason is obvious – having a degree means a higher income.

Additionally, it has long been the understanding that working with your hands is inferior to working with your head.

But, with so many graduates left without work, is university really the right way to go?

PDR Training South Africa

Drawbacks of a choosing a degree vs a trade

Length of a degree vs trade

Typically, a university degree takes 4 years to complete, which means people entering the workforce after their degree, do so at the age of 22.

That shaves some years off a person’s career and can be seen as an opportunity cost, one where students only get to experience the “real world” much later than someone who chose to do a trade.

A trade typically take a lot less time to complete, they have smaller class sizes, and most the training is hands-on, which is an ideal environment for many types of learners.

Our “fundamentals” paintless dent removal training course takes 5 days to complete, leaving you with the skills and knowledge you need to pursue a successful career as a certified paintless dent removal technician.

Costs of a degree vs a trade

Another massive drawback is the cost of a degree. For thousands of students in South Africa, a student loan is the only way they can afford to pay for university.

Although, there are some student loans which are certainly better than others, the added cost of accumulating interest makes the overall expense of receiving an education in South Africa significantly higher for the average student than the already steep price tag suggests.

Contact us, to find out more about the affordable costs of our PDR training course. 

Dropout rates of a degree vs a trade

Yet another drawback of a degree, is that at the age of 18, many students just aren’t prepared for the severities of a four-year university degree.

Additionally, many young students enroll in degrees, with very little understanding of what they really want to do with their lives, and often make their choices based on what “pays well” or what is popular at the time.

Consequently, this leaves room for dropouts and late graduation. Which in turn opens the possibility for money wastage and even higher costs due to the extended time that it takes people to finish their degrees.

On the other hand, a trade is a more streamlined approach to education, with programmes focusing on developing a skillset and knowledge base for a career rather than receiving a general education.

Job opportunities for a degree vs a trade

Finally, university degrees and diplomas no longer hold the promise of jobs for young South Africans.

Every year, approximately 700 000 South African graduates battle to find work, leaving many of them indebted to student loans and unable to put into practice the knowledge that they have learned.

In addition, the ever-growing group of unemployed graduates, must then rely on their families to support them or find jobs as unskilled workers.

Furthermore, graduates are also faced with the hardships of having to pay back their ever-increasing, interest accumulating student loans.

Unfortunately, university degrees are a career investment that require a both a considerable amount of time and money, and the percentage of graduates who are unable to find their desirable employment or employment at all, are seeing negative returns.

However, trades can lead to well-paying jobs, with many of these jobs having room for growth and managerial potential in each field.

Not only that, but there is a growing domestic demand for high-precision skills in South Africa, as well as all over the world.

This is because, skilled trade workers are an excessively older population, and the truth is, they will only continue to get older. This creates increased opportunities for young workers to fill their shoes.
