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?
