How do I know what training I need or is available?

We will visit your site, discuss issues pertinent to your success, tour your facilities, and assist you in a training needs assessment. We then work with you to deliver training in the most suitable and cost effective manner to achieve your intended objectives.

What happens if I need a specialized course that I do not find listed in your marketing materials?

We will do our best to either modify or develop new and/or existing training curriculum, or locate outside resources or programs to meet your training needs. We have contacts, resources, and information available to us throughout the region, state, and country.

How much does the training cost?

There are generally two cost effective means of delivering the training. One is through a project as noted above that we will develop with you. A project can cover most if not all training related costs: registration, instructional, materials, etc. The other is through the discretionary budget we have at RCC. If we are not able to deliver by these means then we can deliver training through RCC taking advantage of the all the cost competitiveness of the community college system. In either instance, a cost to the customer is minimal.

"I can’t say enough good things about the feedback I received from the two supervisors we sent to this class today. I have three more people I am anxious to send to the next one, assuming you are planning to schedule a 4th class."

  • Anthony J. Forman
    Chief Financial Officer, United Brass Works Inc.

"Good morning! I just wanted to say a quick Thank You for the 1st time manager training class that you offered yesterday. We sat down this morning and spoke with our supervisor that attended yesterday and he had lots of positive comments about it. He said that he feels that everyone involved in supervision could benefit from it in one form or another. That being said, if you happen to offer it again in the near future I would love to be able to send you our remaining 3 if you have openings for them. It’s a great benefit to us as a local manufacturing company to have the resources available to us made possible by RCC to help make us successful at what we do."
