Don't worry about the college you go to, put your effort into finding a good tradesperson to work for. You learn about 2% of what you need at college. 98% of what is important you will learn at work. A good small or midsized firm will teach you safely and let you try new things. A bad firm will just use you for cheap labour forever.
