RCC’s registered apprenticeship programs offer students the opportunity to work in their field while pursuing their education. These programs are designed to create a path for students to increase their knowledge through a coordinated partnership of on-the-job training and academic instruction, with structured wage increases as the apprentice gain mastery of key skills
Automotive Technology is now offering free noncredit Automotive Service Excellence test preparation programs for technical already working in the industry or those that have completed related credit courses. Offered through RCC’s Extended Learning program, this is an excellent opportunity for both those already working in the industry as well as our current students in the automotive program to gain industry certification.
To meet industry demand, RCC is introducing three new Heating, Ventilating, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) programs. These three certificate programs are stackable, meaning that specific courses can apply to multiple certificates. Certificates include Residential Installation (12 units), Building Automation Control (21 units), HVAC Residential Technology (27 units).
