   Which Education & Training Providers are in my area?

It also provides the ability to limit your search to the type(s) of providers that would most likely offer the training you seek (i.e. Four-year Colleges and Universities, Private Business and Technical Schools, etc.)

The first page of this search is illustrated below:
