What Our Grads Are Saying

I graduated [from] Rosedale and I couldn't be happier. Before I went there I was touring schools from PA down to GA and I couldn't be more satisfied with what I got out of it. Awesome new friend ( fellow students and instructors ) and a get step forward in my automotive carrier. If your thinking about Rosedale just give them a call they are super cool and help you 100% of the way.

- Karl P., Alumni

The instructors are very helpful, letting you know if you need to work on a certain thing, and they’re always there to help you in the shop. So it was very easy to make it through the automotive program and the diesel program.
