“Having the opportunity to learn a trade that I will always be able to use.” — RCC Workforce Student

The demand is there, and is expected to only increase for skilled workers in the fields of heating, air conditioning and refrigeration.

In fact, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Market Statistics, demand for workers with that skill set and technical background is expected to rise 34%.

The Workforce and Community Development Center at RCC is uniquely prepared to train residents in the Northern Neck and Middle Peninsula in these valuable skills in these high-demand fields.
