Rosedale focuses heavily on student interaction and participation. We strive to provide our students with the ideal learning environment.  Some ways we do this include:

  • Two learning labs equipped with computers are available for students, as well as laptops in several of the classrooms.
  • Our Academic Services Coordinator monitors attendance and grades, assists students with note taking skills, and educates students on different ways to learn and study.
  • By creating intimate learning environments, instructors are able to spend time with each one of their students.

I have been around a lot of technical education environments over the years. Rosedale is unique in that they can offer the whole package—passionate staff, first-class facilities, and a top-notch education. They strive to continually improve in all areas which reflects in the quality of students they are putting out into the field. I would highly suggest if you are considering a technical education, to contact them, visit the school, and you will see first hand.

Rosedale Technical College offers the best education and training in the trades and automotive in Pennsylvania. Students learn from accomplished instructors, and employers know they are getting the top graduates in their fields. I know many proud parents of Rosedale Tech graduates. They really are producing the workforce that keeps our economy running.

I loved my experience at Rosedale and wouldn’t change anything. If you are looking to become a master tradesman or woman, then Rosedale is the school for you… Thank you Rosedale for the wonderful experience!

I’ve learned 2 trades here… automotive [technology] and welding. Both trades have had wonderful teachers, the staff is very friendly, and very well managed all around. I’m very grateful to have gone here, and they are very supportive of us veterans. I would most definitely recommend Rosedale as it was recommended to me.

Rosedale didn’t really… They didn’t do the numbers thing. Which is what I always… heard about tech schools, tech colleges. If you had issues at home, issues with babysitters, attendance… they’d move the world to accommodate what you needed. And give you every tool that you needed to be able to graduate and actually apply yourself in the real world. So they took me from a cook who was a part-time dishwasher, and I worked myself in the automotive field all the way up.


Just the Rosedale name changed my life. Because anytime I tell anybody that I graduated from Rosedale… every time… their whole perception changes… I never would have worked for Comcast if it weren’t for the Rosedale name… I truly know that… Rosedale’s given me life. Rosedale has given me the ability to succeed in life. And I thank them for that.


The employees here do everything they can to make sure you are ready to go out in the field… They will help you find a job. They will help you with your resume… I think the interview class here… it’s very valuable. They teach you how to sit down in a professional manner and talk to someone and highlight your skills… If you take that class and you do really well… you are going to have a great-paying job. And you’re going to have a bright future.

College or military, that’s what everyone was doing. That’s what we were told to do all through… school. When I came… to Rosedale, it was a different type of schooling. Because they are actually interested in what you’re learning… You’re not just being forced different subjects upon you. And once a week we are able to get hands-on… do projects out in the facility. Which really gave you a leg up when you went into interviews and they asked you ‘Now do you have any experience?
