RCTC Student Testimonial

"The skills I learned at RCTC's Welding program helped to set me apart from many of the guys I currently work with in the sheet metal industry. Combined with my background in lab work and quality control; the ability to read blueprints, understand weld symbols, and grasp the fundamentals of how to determine a "good weld," allowed me to step into a Quality Control Inspector role on a nuclear ductwork project. It's an opportunity I would not have had without the welding program." ~ Cheri Spading RCTC Welding Program Graduate
