Welcome to our Penticton campus! We are located in the heart of the South Okanagan, easily accessed from Summerland, the Oliver / Osoyoos region and Keremeos to the west. Penticton is an amazing little city nestled between not 1, but 2, world famous lakes; we are hot in the summer and mild in the winter. Spend the summer at the beach, floating down the river channel or exploring the surrounding hills and vineyards. Just don’t forget to pick up some fresh, locally grown fruit along the way. If winter is your season for fun, we are a short 30 minute drive from Apex Ski Resort, home of world class skiing and boarding.

So why come to our campus? Let’s start with the dedicated, qualified instructors and move on to the educational standards that surpass industry expectations. What about the small classes that encourage communication and interaction between students and instructors. Let’s not forget the lifetime refresher program available to every one of our graduates.
