Teachers and facilities are great. It's a smaller school where you feel like part of a community. The other great thing about RDC is all the apprenticeship programs it has. Many companies in Alberta work with RDC and create opportunities for students to get local work experience. The college becomes a polytechnic in 2021. I hope it keeps on serving Albertans for years to come.
