Randolph Community College's Archdale Center is located on 13.9 acres at 110 Park Drive, inside the city of Archdale's Creekside Park off the newly widened Highway 311 (see map below) and is just minutes from Interstate 85.
The Center was built in 1990 and expanded in 2006 to serve the changing needs of the northwest community of Randolph County. It was extensively renovated in 2011 in order to offer a two-year associate in applied science degree in Medical Assisting. Among the many campus-wide improvements, the Archdale Center now boasts a state-of-the-art biology lab to serve the needs of the Medical Assisting students as well as others engaged in health- or science-related studies.
Also in 2011, the College opened a state-of-the-industry Welding Center at Archdale, enabling students to pursue various welding certifications or to enroll in a one-year, comprehensive Welding Technology diploma program or a 14-credit-hour certificate program. The Welding Center has 15 welding stations of Spray Transfer MIG and 20 stations overall and is designed to keep up with the rapid changes in welding technology. It includes a VRTEX 360 Virtual Reality Arc Welding Trainer, which combines realistic puddle simulation and arc welding sound tied to the welder’s movement providing a realistic hands-on training experience.
Additionally, the Archdale Center continues to offer a wide variety of Workforce Development and Continuing Education courses such as computers, phlebotomy, business and industry training, motorcycle rider safety; Human Resources Development computer classes for the unemployed or underemployed; Compensatory Education classes; Adult Basic Education and Adult Secondary Education classes; and Personal Enrichment classes ranging from health and wellness to the creative arts.
