The Dawson Creek Northern Lights College campus is hosting celebrations tonight for the college’s 40th anniversary – and honour donor’s to the college.
Northern Lights College opened its doors in September of 1975, after an Order-in-Council established the college in May of the same year.
Known as ‘BC’s Energy College’, Northern Lights College has grown over the past four decades and expanded to include five campuses and three access centres that serve communities across northern BC.
Here in Fort St. John, the Centre for Training Excellence in Oil and Gas is located in the Jim Kassen Industry Training Centre on the local campus.
The Oil & Gas centre works with post-secondary institutions, industry and other partners to address skills training and education challenges in this growing industry on a provincial scale.
Advanced Education Minister Andrew Wilkinson congratulated students, alumni, faculty and staff on the occasion
The celebrations will run from 5 PM until 7 PM tonight at the Centre of Clean Energy Technology on the Dawson Creek Campus.
