School Description

College of the Rockies was established in 1975 after a hard rock miner from Kimberley approached the Victorian government to address the need for an apprenticeship training school in the East Kootenay region of British Columbia. By October that same year, it conducted its first classes in Cranbrook as the East Kootenay Community College, with only 351 students at the time. Through the years, it continued to served more students in various venues of the community, until finally becoming the College of the Rockies in the year 1995 after approval from the British Columbia Government.

Today, College of the Rockies provides education in a wide variety of academic programs to over 2,000 students, nearly 10% of which are international students representing more than 30 countries across the globe.

        "Mountain Adventure Skills Training (MAST) is perfect for me as the course provides unlimited options for employment and some of my favourite life experiences to date."

        "The MAST program has given me the opportunity to do so many of the activities I've been wanting to get into. Prior to MAST my main issue was finding people to go out with that know what they're doing. MAST has grouped me with like-minded individuals who are just as passionate about the outdoors and keen to learn as I. Many of the trips we do would otherwise take a great deal of effort to organize. In the normal course of things you would be lucky to complete one or two trips in a year. MAST is nine packed months of trips that just wouldn't be possible otherwise. One of the best things about MAST is you learn to do everything the safe and proper way the first time around, no picking up people's bad habits. We're taught by experienced professionals who obviously enjoy teaching. Spending so much time with ACMG guides and bombarding them with questions has given me a new perspective on what the guiding industry is all about, and more importantly, what's needed to become one."
