Bring-a-Friend Days at Rosedale Tech

At Rosedale Tech, we believe that potential students should have the opportunity to not only tour our facilities, but also experience hands-on what a typical day will be like for them in our automotive, collision repair, diesel, electrical, HVAC, industrial technician, and welding programs. This service is what we call shadow days, which allow for potential students to spend a day in class with current students. As a way to extend this opportunity to a larger group, Rosedale 13133272_10153396724511441_7445999982782862332_nTech began to offer Bring-a-Friend Days.

The concept is simple: if a student has a friend or family member who is trying to decide on a career or career change or is interested in pursuing opportunities in the trades, they are invited to bring this person to school for the pre-scheduled day. The friends sit in on theory, experience some time in the labs and even get to tour the rest of the school to learn about the other program offerings.

If you or someone you know is interested in scheduling a shadow day to learn about our automotive, collision repair, diesel, electrical, HVAC, industrial technician, and welding programs, please call us at (412) 521-6200.
