Interesting thing to consider, however, is that some of these jobs are already on many people's radar, thus training programs for them are overloaded.
For example, there's a 3.5 year waiting list for the diagnostic medical sonography program at our local tech college.

This is great and so true! I work at an awesome (ie. small and caring) vocational school in San Jose that offers career training in Medical Administrative and Transcription careers and we're still seeing all of our grads getting snatched up!
