An education at RRCC can also help connect you to jobs in the industry - just ask Red Rocks graduate Seth Joraanstad: “While I was looking for work, I found out that Red Rocks Community College offered a 2 year machinist program, so I jumped at the opportunity. At the end of my first year in the program my professor told me that Barber-Nichols was looking for an apprentice machinist to join their team and that he would recommend me to them. With some hard work and a lot of luck I was hired on there. I couldn’t be happier with my decision to become a machinist and the job I landed through their program.”
