This new ECE program introduces a hybrid delivery model, providing flexibility for students who may be working or have other commitments. Students attend one in-person class per week and can take the rest of the program online.

The 11-month program also includes three practicum courses, providing students with real-world experience. One of the hallmarks of an OC education also includes community based and professional instructors teaching in a small and intimate setting.

Funding for this program was received by OneSky Community Resources, in collaboration with Okanagan College, and was provided by the Government of Canada through the Canada-BC Workforce Development Agreement.
