See What Students and Partners Have to Say:

Rosedale provided the necessary skills needed for my sons to have the BEST education possible. My oldest son was offered a job as a Diesel mechanic three months before he graduated. My youngest son graduated with the welding certificate and started his job the very next day. The Rosedale staff are very friendly and helpful and I can’t thank them enough for all they did for my two sons!

Deciding to attend Rosedale Technical College for HVAC was one of the best decisions in my life. I now have a promising career in a field that is growing rapidly and needs well trained technicians. The entire staff is dedicated to providing the best training possible so that students are ready for work immediately following program completion… I highly recommend Rosedale for anybody that want to learn the trade and have a great career in HVAC.

Justin Piot

I highly recommend Rosedale Tech to individuals looking to better their future. I am a part of the trucking industry and have worked with Rosedale in multiple occasions, in my opinion they are one of the best CDL/Trade schools in the Tri-State area. They take pride in getting their students employed. I have drivers who graduated months ago and Rosedale still communicates with them, the relationship doesn't end after graduation.
