No, there's no way the state that you or anybody's living in would let you acquire a State License for the trade or career courses you're interested in. I already tried for real estate and mortgage broker. Also, i spoke to an attorney and he said i couldn't get a license for massage therapy or cosmetology. Sorry for being a negative Nancy but it's true. We're screwed!

Good Luck
