Math, what is it good for? A lot actually. Well that’s what I read, I’m not very good at math. If you’re reading this post you’re probably like me so here we go.

There are plenty of light on math training programs that will prepare you for a job that pays well. Careers like graphic design, human resources and truck driver all require little math. There are many others, here’s a short list to think about.

9 Programs Light on Math

Licensed Massage Therapist – Little or no math.

Nursing Assistant – 1 or 2 basic courses, no advanced formulas.

Culinary Artist – Again, 1 or 2 basic courses, no formulas.

Graphic Designer – Basic math.

Dental Assistant – Some basic math and a little accounting for the office.

Restaurant Manager – Some accounting and business math.

CDL Truck Driver – Little or no math. There isn’t more than basic math on a CDL test.

HVAC Tech – You need high school algebra to get into the program.

Lab Technician – 4 credits of math, or 1 college algebra class.

Other Programs

Many programs in the medical field besides those on this list, while requiring some math, don’t require a lot. Careers like medical assistant, healthcare administration and medical coding have high rates of employment so they’re generally a good option.

Obviously, this isn’t an exhaustive list but hopefully it got you thinking. You do not need to be a math whiz to have a great career that pays well.
