Actually, I completely forgot to put college up (but there's not much point fixing that now >_<, and by two year programs... I'm guessing you mean college too?? I just picked the ones I'm most familiar with (Canadian education system is probably a lot different from certain other countries).
Yeah like trade schools and tech colleges, as well as Associate of Arts programs. Of course as you said, Canadian education may be different. I just mentioned those because there a popular alternative for people in the U.S. whose career path doesn't require a four year degree (though it might be helpful to have those two extra years of education)
