Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows residents do not need to travel far if they are looking for employment-focused post-secondary educational opportunities.
Ridge Meadows College is increasingly the school people are turning to for a variety of programs and hands-on industry experience designed to get students into the work force, said RMC manager Will Carne.
“We will work to find the right fit for you,” he said, noting registration is currently underway for several course offerings. “All of our programs are designed with employment in mind so that our graduates are able to go right into the work force and be successful in whatever it is they choose to do.”
RMC offers a number of certificate and trades programs as well as individual courses for professional development and general interest.
Carne added that the college is an ideal choice for anyone looking for training as an administrative office specialist, a building service worker, an early childhood educator, or an education assistant. He noted that the college partners local organizations and industry leaders to promote job placement for most of its programs.
“We have a lot of students who are coming to us straight out of high school,” he said. “Others are looking to get back into school after a break. Some are thinking of us as a bridge to larger colleges in Metro Vancouver.”
