What well-paying jobs require a two-year degree or certificate?

Considering the recent focus on two-year schools and vocational education, I found pretty interesting this piece on jobs that pay a median salary of $45,000 a year and require just a two-year degree — at least for entry:

  • Registered Nurse
  • Dental Hygienist
  • Respiratory Therapist
  • Programmer
  • Telecom Installer
  • Industrial Engineering Technician
  • Police Officer (Federal)
  • HVAC Mechanic
  • Paralegal
How accurate do you think this list is?
