Randolph Community College
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. While the Archdale Center originally focused on Continuing Education training and Basic Skills classes, the scope has been expanded in recent years to include college credit courses in the Associate in Arts (College Transfer) curriculum, Nursing Assistant courses, Early Childhood Education courses, and partnerships with area high schools.
The Archdale Center 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. 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.
Starting in Fall 2012, students planning careers in the expansive and lucrative fields of logistics, supply chain management, distribution, and warehousing will be able to pursue a two-year associate in applied science degree in Global Logistics at the Archdale Center.
Additionally, the Archdale Center continues to offer a wide variety of 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 General Educational Development (GED) classes; and Personal Enrichment classes ranging from health and wellness to the creative arts.
The Archdale Center is open Monday – Thursday from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. and 8 a.m. – 3 p.m. on Friday. For additional information, please call the Center at 336-862-7980. Check out the photos of Archdale's happenings.
