EverQuest II has nine crafting classes (professions) and two secondary classes. All crafters start at level 1 as an artisan. At level 10 they must choose an archetype: Craftsman, Outfitter, or Sage. At level 20 they must choose their final crafting class from those available to their archetype.
It is possible to change your crafting class if you hate it. See: Tradeskill Respecialization
