Youth Training Opportunities

The RMTC works closely with both the Branch Area Careers Center and the Calhoun Area Career Center to ensure youth have pathways to manufacturing careers. Pathways may include articulation and dual enrollment.


Students interested in pursuing a career in Industrials Trades are encouraged to enroll in a program at one of the career centers during high school. Courses taken at the career centers may be articulated with the RMTC, which means high schools students may earn college credit prior to graduation.

Important! The RMTC Articulation Form differs from the traditional KCC Articulation Form

Bruin Bots

Bruin Bots is a robotics program for middle school aged youth. Using specialized Lego kits and materials, the program is working to build community capacity to engage more youth in exciting hands-on STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) learning. It is also providing participants access to KCC Industrial Trades faculty and the RMTC facility in learning about the great local STEM careers that can be accessed through a KCC education. Visit the Bruin Bots website to learn more about this program.

Dual Enrollment

High school students may also dual enroll at the RMTC. Dual enrolled students actually attend the RMTC and earn college credit, while they are still in High School. Dedicated students can graduate from high school and an Industrial Trades program at the same time.
