I've got a little money I'm thinking about turning into some classes/training for a serious career change. With education at such a high price, I would need to pick a career/trade that can pay off the loans I would need to complete. I'm looking at trades, skilled craftwork, 2-year degrees, and 4-year degrees. Got any suggestions? [more inside]

Two part question.
1.) Roughly how much does it cost for a company to hire someone to do one on one training for a new hire in Adobe Flash?
2.) Company likes you so much they offer you a job and are willing to pay out for your training on said and/or similar software, but give that as a reason for (insert too low salary range here) being the pay scale. You want to negotiate the best salary for yourself. Is it unheard of to ask for your salary to be increased the following year because the training will no longer be a hit to the budget?

Where would I find high demand specialty jobs that might help pay for the schooling? I'm looking into a career change and looking for jobs that might be in high enough demand where some entity would paid to get the training/schooling and take that job.
I'm not so much looking for low skilled high wage jobs as I am niche jobs that requires education, as I would also like to get a degree. An example is like the way the military requires a 4 year enlistment but you get training and alike out of them. (although I'm to old to try this now) This could also include government sponsored job training programs for specific industries. Maybe like an X-ray tech? I just don't know where to hunt for such things.

I'm looking for software companies that do 1) aptitude-based hiring and 2) on-the-job training: "If you pass a (often language-agnostic) programming test, in addition to in-person interviews, maybe a code review, etc., we will train you for your job." What companies in the Chicago area follow this model? [more inside]

Corporate trainers, I need your help. I need to train some colleagues on the capabilities of an software package to prepare them for designing some upgraded features. However, they are not users of the software, so my standard new-user training is not going to cut it. Do you have any tips on how to do this kind of training/education? Any suggestions of training books or websites that can help? [more inside]

How easy is it to get a entry level job as a pyrotechnician? I ran into this guy at the local computer surplus store and we got to talking about his hat. It turns out that he works for a fireworks display company. One of the things he said was that it was relatively easy to get hired as a helper at this company after taking one of their introductory seminars. This caught my interest and also pinged my scam detector. Going online I notice that most firework companies seem to run introductory seminars. I'm guessing that these courses are a nice revenue source for pyrotechnics companies. Has anyone taken any of these courses? If so, did you actually get to work on displays afterward? Was the course fun enough to be worth doing just for itself?
