Camosun College has increased its regional presence with the opening of the Camosun Coastal Centre. Formerly known as IMTARC (Industry Marine Training and Applied Research Centre), the satellite site is located on Songhees Nation Territory near the Esquimalt Graving Dock. The 4,000 square foot training building sits on leased land and was built in 2013.
The facility includes two state-of-the-art classrooms can accommodate up to 40 people each and a 12-station computer lab. At this new location, Camosun plans to: continue the successful programming in coastal and marine-related Contract Training courses already offered by IMTARC; offer customized programs for Indigenous communities; develop new offerings in Continuing Education; and, deliver space rental for external education and industry providers.
