Penticton College Campus

Welcome to the Sprott Shaw Penticton College Campus! The Penticton campus is centrally located in the heart of the South Okanagan, which is easily accessible from Summerland, the Oliver and Osoyoos region. This campus is nearby local bus routes and is neighbours with Walmart, Cherry Lane Mall, and Tim Hortons.

Our Practical Nursing Program receives distinguished interest within the local and surrounding communities. In fact, some of our graduates have been offered positions before completion. Our well-respected Health Care Assistant program offers monthly intakes so you can “get in, get out, and get working.” If you are from the Oliver and Osoyoos community, the HCA satellite class is offered in conjunction with the Mariposa Gardens and may be of interest to you as you can go to school and train on-site in your own community.

If you’re in town for the International Children’s Festival, Peach Fest, Iron Man, Oktoberfest, or any other renowned local event, stop by and say hello!

To reach the Penticton Campus directly, please call 888.996.5498.
