Why Hire a Ranken Graduate?

Ranken Technical College brings a rich history and tradition of excellence to the St. Louis region. For over 100 years, Ranken has maintained its commitment of providing the highest quality education to its students. Through that commitment, Ranken trains and prepares students to become valuable employees through its hands-on education and strict work ethic philosophies.

Ranken graduates are highly-skilled technical workers, and are also trained in work ethic and general studies. Ranken not only trains students with the most up-to-date technologies and skills, but the College is dedicated to instilling work ethic characteristics such as honesty, dependability, professionalism, teamwork and appearance and safety consciousness to successfully bridge the gap between an excellent student and a reliable employee.

Many companies exclusively hire Ranken students because they can depend on Ranken’s educational formula to train and prepare students for real world experiences.
