President's Message

On behalf of the faculty, staff and Board of Trustees, I extend a warm welcome to Renton Technical College.

For 70 years, our college has provided quality education in a tremendous variety of occupations. Our professional-technical programs offer entry level opportunities in areas such as automotive repair, computer networking, culinary arts, welding, machining, nursing, massage therapy, apprenticeship training, and anesthesia technology. Our outstanding Basic Studies program, with classes in adult basic education, English as a second language, and GED preparation, is available to those who need additional preparation prior to entering a training program or for those who simply wish to improve their math and English skills.

As an Achieving the Dream school, Renton Technical College is one of only six colleges in Washington State selected to participate in a nation-wide initiative focused on providing the support to help all students achieve their educational goals. Our nationally recognized expertise in Universal Design for Learning (UDL) and Integrated Basic Education and Skills Training (IBEST) are two examples of the innovative instructional strategies used by our exceptional faculty to meet the individual learning styles of each and every student.

Our professional counseling staff is ready to assist you in choosing the program that’s right for you. Regardless of the program you select, our goal is to provide you with the skills you need to be successful in the workplace. With one of the highest placement rates in Washington State, Renton Technical College offers the programs and the support that you need to succeed in today’s competitive workforce.
