    as well as the qualifications (college night classses etc.) I would suggest you phone a couple of local sparks and offer yourself (free) for a couple of Saturday shifts.

    This will let you know if you will like the trade and if it will like you

    Then you have only wasted a couple of weekend days off, not lots of colledge fees etc...

    best of luck
