Nestled in a region known as the Rocky Mountain Trench, the College of the Rockies (COTR) boasts breathtaking mountain views and the opportunity for unique programs like mountain adventure skills training. COTR offers a comprehensive range of diploma, certificate, degree, apprenticeship, and upgrading programs, including business, computer science, recreation, tourism, and global studies. It has seven campuses: two in Cranbrook (including the main campus), as well as regional campuses in Creston, Fernie, Golden, Invermere and Kimberley.
Each campus differs in its program offerings, specializing in certain areas like outdoor mountain training at the Fernie campus, adventure and eco-tourism at the Golden campus, and contract and trades training at the Gold Creek campus in Cranbrook. Most campuses offer adult basic education. The Cranbrook campus has a student residence with single, private rooms and shared bathrooms.
COTR’s campuses are within the traditional territories of the Ktunaxa Nation. COTR supports Aboriginal students through the Aboriginal gathering place, located at the edge of the Cranbrook Community Forest. The gathering place features a student lounge and is home to programs like the Aboriginal education support worker diploma and Aboriginal financial manager diploma.
