Since its creation, First College has helped hundreds of students from the Okanagan Valley achieve their training and career goals. We recognize that for our students, this is a once in a lifetime experience and we are fortunate to play a pivotal role in each personal story created in our classrooms.
We work together with our staff members, faculty, students, community, and health facility partners in a supportive environment to achieve growth and success by offering relevant up-to-date programs for various careers.
At First College, we lead by example. That is the reason we publish our mission statement. First College is not only a high quality institution, but also one that is known as being socially responsible in the community.
