In an effort to bring more skilled workers to the region to fill several job openings, a new vocational education facility is in the works. Ranken Technical College is opening a satellite campus in Perryville. The college is a private, not –for-profit, degree granting institution. Its main campus in St. Louis offers programs in fields such as auto repair, construction, information technology and manufacturing. The curriculum for the Perryville facility has yet to be determined.
