Kimberley Campus Business Development Manager Jeff Cooper

Kimberley COTR campus hosting open house

An opportunity to learn about all COTR programming

The College of the Rockies is hosting an Open House next Tuesday, May 16 from 4 to 6 p.m. and Business Development Manager Jeff Cooper is really hoping to see a lot of people come out.

This is an opportunity to learn what COTR has to offer, not just in Kimberley, but region-wide, meet the campus staff and enjoy some light refreshments.

“This is a follow up to local high school visits,” Cooper said. “We thought, the team is here anyway, it’s an opportunity to get people to visit the Kimberley campus.

“A lot of people are not even aware of what we offer, and what we do. The recruiters will be available to answer questions. They are touring all the satellite campuses.

“I have wanted to have an open house to keep campus awareness up.”

Registration for fall 2017 programs at COTR is now open. At the open house, you will find information on the ACE-IT presentation, program information on academic, vocational and trades, degree program information, continuing education, dual admission programs and the Kimberley campus fire training program.

“We want people to know that we are here in Kimberley. We want to bring in community members and members of the business community and show them that we do offer a lot of continuing education in Kimberley,” Cooper said. “We want public feedback. What courses are you interested in?

“The more we can get the word out about what we offer, the better.”
