The instructors said, “The students who attend RT-1 always arrive with extraordinary passion and depart with the foundational knowledge that both complements and empowers that passion to drive this union forward. The students of the August 2022 class carried on this tradition in exceptional fashion! These students showed tremendous conviction and aptitude required for any leader in this constantly changing climate.”
