Testimonials

"I had the pleasure of hosting a Red Rocks student in my medical imaging department. I was very impressed with her knowledge and willingness to learn. She was fluent in most exams and great with patients. The education she has received from Red Rocks is exceptional. I would love to have students from Red Rocks any day!

"Everyone at RRCC has been super helpful. It has been tough going back to school and being a parent at the same time but RRCC has been great. All of the instructors in the Radiologic Technology program are really there for you. So glad I decided to get an education here. Thanks Red Rocks!

-Mitch Davis
Radiologic Technology Student, Class of 2017

I've been a Radiologic Technologist for over 40 years. I've worked in seven states in various facilities (i.e. hospitals, clinics, orthopedic surgeons office, etc.). I've been very impressed by the knowledge shown by the Red Rocks Radiology students. They've shown a lot of confidence in the clinical setting. I recommend their program to any interested in Radiological Sciences.
