What Our Grads Are Saying

I trust Rosedale Tech’s reputation… The instructors are very knowledgeable. Most of them have 10+ years experience, ASEs to back them up, and they’re more than willing to help you with whatever you need… The school definitely got me to where I needed to be.

- David L., 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.
