Education

The RCA is committed to providing relevant education opportunities for members. We welcome input from members on any course they would like to see offered and provide many of the classes on demand. A limited number of courses may be delivered on site with a minimum of eight students.

Our courses are divided into two categories; Core Construction and Soft Skills Development.

The majority of the courses are blended meaning they include an on line component for reference and review. Gold Seal points are allocated for both the on line component as well as the in class portion and Gold Seal points are indicated for each class in the description.

*Please note effective January 1, 2017 it is a requirement to complete both the online and in class Business Ethics course to qualify for Gold Seal Certification.  The RCA is offering this course on February 13, 2017.  The online portion will be covered within the class so there is no need to complete that portion ahead of time.  The course cost ($400.00) includes the online course fee.

All of the course reviews are listed in the menu bar under the Course Descriptions and Reviews. Dates for the current courses are listed on the calendar.
