College of the Rockies
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. The college has three academic departments for areas of health & human services, trades & technology, and business & university studies through which it offers 3 bachelor degrees for business administration, nursing, and education.
