We are your community College! The Invermere Campus is pleased to contribute to local projects and events

The Invermere Campus has coordinated the following Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (HRSDC) Job Creation Partnership Projects with local community partners: „ Invermere Community Hall Renovations in partnership with the District of Invermere „ Interface Fire Protection Project in partnership with the District of Invermere, Canfor, Ministry of Forests and Invermere Fire Department „ Columbia Valley Tourism Marketing Initiative with the Columbia Valley Tourism Marketing Alliance. „ Field House at Mount Nelson Athletic Park in partnership with the District of Invermere, Rocky Mountain School District #6, Rotary Club. The Invermere Campus is also very proud of its affiliation with the Columbia Basin Alliance for Literacy, the Literacy Charity Golf Tournament, Wings Over the Rockies, Columbia Valley Arts Council and the Columbia Valley Soccer Association.

College profiles Student: Lydia Helmer

What past students have to say...

I did the RCA Course at College of the Rockies in 2003. The content of the course was super. Aline Sholinder covered everything in the course in an exceptional manner. Aline made the course interesting and we had a lot of fun learning some very serious things about Senior Care. So anyone interested in working in this field, I would highly recommend the RCA Course at College of the Rockies in Invermere.

- Sandy McKay RCA/HS

What employers have to say...

Radium Resort has hired graduates of the Resort and Hotel Management Program offered at the Invermere Campus. College of the Rockies has also provided in-house training over the years in a variety of areas such as First Aid, FoodSafe, and computers. We are proud of our association with Leona Gadsby in coordinating the Literacy Golf Tournament for the past 11 years.

- Steve Kuffler, General Manager, Radium Resort

I had the opportunity to attend the College of the Rockies in Invermere from September 2001 to April 2002. I was enrolled in the Hotel/Resort Management program offered. After many years of being at home raising children, I was seeking skills (and moral support) for re-entering the work force. The program offered a balanced approach including computer skills, accounting, marketing as well as the more specific courses of front desk, housekeeping and food and beverage services. I found the college and all those involved to be helpful, welcoming and knowledgeable. They were very flexible and accommodating which made the transition for preparing to enter the work force that much easier. The courses were very helpful in gaining the basic skills and confidence to do them, as well as opening a few doors to several opportunities. I did get a job at a fairly new Ad & Print Agency Mackena Creative - almost immediately upon completion of the courses. My interview for one of my assignments was with Sandy Fika, co-owner of the business and this led to my opportunity! While I may not be working specifically in the Hotel/Resort Industry, the courses were balanced enough to extend to other prospects. My experience at the College of the Rockies was very positive and I would heartily recommend it to anyone seeking qualified education that is accessible and flexible.

Instructor: Bob Gadsby

Bob Gadsby is an instructor at the Invermere Campus of the College of the Rockies. He teaches in the self-paced adult upgrading program. This program is designed for people wanting to complete high school equivalent coursed for purposes of graduation, college entry, job requirements or simply for personal satisfaction. Most people take mathematics, English or computer courses, but a wide variety of courses are available, either in-house or through distance education. Bob moved to the valley in 1989 with his wife, Leona, and two boys, Jordan and Forest. A third boy, Robin, was born in 1990 in the house they rented in Windermere, owned by the Carscadens. They moved to Edgewater in the Spring of 1990 where they lived for six years before moving into Invermere. In addition to his work at the college helping people achieve their academic goals, Bob is very active in the community with the Invermere Judo Club and the Columbia Valley Youth Soccer Association. Bob began taking judo classes in 1994 because his boys were taking judo. With his natural ability to teach, he was soon helping the instructor with classes for the younger kids. Bob is now a first-degree black belt (Shodan), a certified coach and a provincial level referee. Two nights a week he attends judo where he instructs, along with head Sensei, Hermann Mauthner. In addition to instructing, Bob also manages the financial and administratives aspects of the club. When his boys began to participate in the local soccer program, Bob also became involved, starting with co-coaching his son's U9 team. Bob continued to coach and when asked to help with the administration of the soccer program, he agreed. Through his efforts and the support of dozens of volunteer coaches, referees and managers, the soccer program has expanded to include almost 500 kids in its Spring program. In addition to managing the affairs of the association, Bob is a rep team coach and a provincially certified referee. On top of that, for the past five years, in the Fall, he has coached and refereed in the high school boys’ soccer program.

What community members have to say...

The Invermere Campus of College of the Rockies has played a very important role in our community by providing the citizens of our valley with opportunities to study locally. The District of Invermere appreciates the initiative of College of the Rockies in undertaking and completing a number of valuable community projects as part of on-the-job training programs.

- Mayor of Invermere Mark Shmigelsky

The Invermere campus is at the centre of many important initiatives in the valley. Marilyn Petersen and her staff lead the way on issues from adult literacy to training for wildfire fuel reduction. Businesses interested in tourism marketing and skills training look first to the college for solutions and are seldom disappointed. The college is a critical resource that we would be hard-pressed ever to do without.

- Mayor of Radium Greg Deck

Premier Programs at the Invermere Campus... College of the Rockies' Invermere Campus offers a full complement of health programs including Licensed Practical Nursing, Resident Care Attendant/Home Support Certification, and all levels of First Aid training and certification. The college has responded to the demand in the valley for more trained tradespeople and is currently offering the Residential Construction Framing Technician Program in partnership with the Canadian Home Builders Association of BC and the Industry Training Authority. Local contractors provide these students with on-the-job practical work experience in the practicum component of this 11-month program. Students also have an opportunity to gain exposure to a wide variety of trades in the 10-week Introduction to Trades Program which provides students with basic instruction in trades including plumbing, electrical, welding, timber framing, carpentry and automotive mechanics. Students in this program also obtain various industry and workplace certifications. The Invermere Campus has also been involved in coordinating a number of Job Creation Partnership projects which have completed community generated projects such as the Community Hall Renovation, the Interface Fire Protection Project and the current project to complete the Field House at Mount Nelson Athletic Park. Other programs new to the Invermere Campus this year include the Restaurant Employability Skills Training Program and Office Skills Discovery Program. These programs are designed to provide entry-level training related to the workplace. The college has also expanded its Highschool Upgrading/College Prep program to include two evenings a week of study opportunities. This self-paced, continuous intake program enables students to upgrade highschool courses, complete college program prerequisites or simply update academic/ technology skills. The Invermere Campus continues to offer a wide variety of continuing education, contract training and general interest courses. There are courses designed for many interests and age ranges as well as a wide variety of on-line learning opportunities. Learn where you live and play - enroll in a course at the Invermere campus.

SPORTS

She’s a kicking player! By Kelsie Ede Pioneer Correspondent

Holly Krasnuik works that soccer ball.

With the soccer season just around the corner, many students are getting their shin pads and cleats ready for the upcoming season. But for Grade 10 student Holly Krasnuik, the soccer season can’t start soon enough. Holly has been playing soccer ever since she can remember. Her father, Russell Krasnuik, was the first person to introduce her to the sport, but ever since then Holly has been hooked. Playing on a variety of soccer teams throughout her life, Holly has gained a large knowledge of the sport and has developed exceptional skills. She has played on the David Thompson Secondary School Senior Girls Soccer team since she was in Grade 8, and last fall she spent the season playing on the Junior Boys team. “Playing with the junior boys really helped develop my skills and it was a great experience for me,” said Holly. “I also learned how important it is to work as a team.” Holly was recently recognized for her achievements in soccer when she was invited to the tryouts for the Under-16 B.C. Girls Soccer Team. The tryouts are used as a skill assessment camp for exceptional players, and help many players see what it is like to play a high level of soccer. The tryouts were held in Burnaby last weekend but unfortunately

The Old Zone

By Harold Hazelaar and Brent Raven Today is March 11th and our Old-Timers’ hockey season ends this weekend. It seems like only a couple of weeks ago that we started our season. Maybe it seems that way because our memories, for better or worse, are beginning to fail us. All of us had aspirations of playing on the eventual championship team. Sadly, most of us did not achieve this goal!! After 26 fun-filled games and nights out with our buds, the reality remains that the successful hockey careers we dreamed of in our youth are figments of our imagination, possibly enhanced by the hot chocolate or herbal tea we consumed each week. As I am writing this, there are still two or three teams with a chance to win it all this year. I will let you know next week which team prevailed. None of our escapades would be possible were it not for the efforts of the management and staff of our wonderful ice facility here in Invermere. The Old-Timers would like Phyllis, The Old Zone is brought to you by:

Al, Aurel, Jye and Sasha to know that we appreciate their efforts all season long for all arena users, and especially every Wednesday evening, to make our games enjoyable. “Helmets off to all five of you.” You know, sometimes a cold shower isn’t such a bad thing!! Well, one more game and then it’s time to dust off the golf clubs. Who am I ????? Number 4: This is one of our longest serving members at 25 years of service. His hobbies include fishing, hunting, whittling wood and fixing machinery. He has seen his name on the cup twice, once with Ray Taft and once with Bob Stafford. Be careful when you try to get around this defenceman, because he could snap you like a two-by-four if he wanted to. E-mail your guess to hhazelaar@kijhl.com and include your name and phone number by March 16. Answer to Who Am I Number 3: Ken Mitchell. Results from March 2: Jansen over Dearin, Fillatre tied Bourcier, Raven tied White and Mason over Julien.

Holly was unable to attend due to the conflicting schedule with the East Kootenay Basketball Championships. Also, in order to be selected for the Under-16 team, a full commitment is required from all players. Holly would have been expected to attend practices twice a week in Vancouver, making it virtually impossible for her to make the commitment. Although Holly did not attend this tryout, she plans on attending any other tryouts or camps that come her way once the season begins and she gets back into the right mind frame. “It is a great opportunity to improve yourself as a player. You can take many new skills away from camps like these and learn many new helpful drills,” said Holly. Luckily for the Senior Girls Soccer Team, Holly will be able to contribute to their already strong and growing team once the spring season commences. Until then, Holly plans on continuing to further develop her soccer skills and to work on keeping a positive attitude. Throughout the duration of spring break, Holly hopes to participate in indoor practices held in Calgary and also plans to check out the university practices to discover new drills and see how she needs to prepare herself for university level soccer. Watch out, Invermere, we may have the next Mia Hamm on our hands.
