Focusing on personal attention and direction we have one main campus with no other Branches or satellites at this time. We enhanced the learning environment with expanded class rooms, labs, updated equipment and enhanced Instructors and curriculum and student areas to increase the client's retention and to foster a greater learning and simulate actual work environment.

NEW COURSES Over several years we identified labor market training need for field related industry and employment, thus we have developed and applied for new program approvals from the then BPPVE (now BPPE) to complement our existing offerings in 2005. RWM developed and applied for new program approvals from the BPPE again in 2011 to diversify our related in-field training programs. What we train is in our present and future vocational fields, thus the new programs are in our occupational knowledge.
