Following raves in Barcelona and Paris, you can be one of the few organizations to join Joe Justice in the first Team WIKISPEED workshops in Canada.

The event will be professionally video taped for later release.

March 12, 2012

A trio of Red River College students have received rave reviews from a local robotic software developer, for their work on a prototype website for the Manitoba-based Virtual Robot Games (VRG).

As part of their coursework for the fall term of RRC’s Business Information Technology program, second-year students Cyle Hunter, Scott Bevan and Nathaniel Dolynchuk paired with Winnipeg-based Cogmation Robotics, a software developer specializing in robotic simulation.

Business Conference Helps Students Network

March 9, 2012

RRC business students will have a valuable opportunity to rub elbows with leaders from Manitoba’s business community at Red River College’s 2012 Directions Business Conference.

Approximately 600 people, including past RRC alumni, are expected to attend this year’s event, which will be held on February 1 at Canad Inns Polo Park.

The annual business conference is aimed at engaging RRC students in the school of Business and Applied Arts, and helps provide them with a chance to meet people in the industry where they want to work. Participation also allows students to create contacts, and benefit from the experience of attending a professional business conference.

Students will be able to take in valuable career advice from Paul Soubry Jr., President and CEO of New Flyer, who is the event’s breakfast keynote speaker. After graduating with a Bachelor of Commerce from the Asper School of Business at the University of Manitoba, Soubry went on to study at Harvard and began his career in Winnipeg at Standard Aero. He eventually became that company’s president before joining New Flyer in 2009, and now sits on the Board of Directors at Mondetta Clothing, the Associates IH Asper School of Business, Economic Development Winnipeg and the Winnipeg Airports Authority.

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

October 15, 2010

Have you taken a course at another institute (or at RRC) that is equivalent to a course you are taking now? Do you have life experience in an area that is equivalent to a course you are taking now? Maybe you should consider RPL.

Why do RPL?

It is not an effective and efficient use of resources if learners are having to relearn what they already know and can do. This also adds time, and sometimes additional costs, to the learner’s program. By providing opportunities for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL), the college is better able to meet the needs of learners.
