I need a list of careers which do not necessarily require a University degree or formal training.

After 15 years of dealing with long hours, little pay and stress that was beginning to damage my health, I walked out on my job. I really do feel that I could use a change of career (worked in Broadcast), something refreshing with better hours, pay and challenges. Problem is, at my age (38) and with not a heck of alot of money in the bank, I really can't afford to go back to school. So, do careers out there exist that I could explore without having to invest time and money in school? For example, I noticed that one could begin a career as an Actuary by demonstrating proficiency through a written exam. Math isn't my thing, so that's out of the question, but I imagine there are other careers like that, where you can demonstrate ability and learn on the job...thanks!
