The Middle Skills Academy was created to meet that demand. At RCC, the philosophy is that success is attainable through all levels of training and education.

Middle Skills Academy offers programs where students can gain workforce certifications in less than a year. Jobs in these fields have typical starting salaries of $45,000 – $55,000. These programs have also been designed to provide future opportunities to transfer into specific industry certifications and degree-seeking programs.

Programs are designed to meet the growing demand in the Hudson Valley. Class offerings, program length and locations vary based on the program. Costs range from $2,999 to $3,999 and there are scholarship and grant opportunities for those who qualify.
