In 1971, College of the Rockies was started by a member of the local school board and hard rock miner James Patterson. He had realized the pressing need for apprenticeship training in the region of East Kootenay of British Columbia. The government had said that the main campus must be made in Cranbrook. In 1975, 351 students had registered in Cranbrook, 64 had registered in Kimberley, 39 in Golden, 52 in Fernie, and 37 in Invermere. The Cranbrook campus had officially opened on 20th September 1982.

Gradually, new facilities were brought in at the Invermere campus in March 1988, and the Fernie campus in October 1989. East Kootenay Community college had changed its name to the College of the Rockies in 1995. In March 2000, the Canadian Heraldic Authority had registered the Arms of the College of the Rockies. On 29th October 2010, the Knowledge Infrastructure Program Project was opened at the main campus of Cranbrook. The federal/provincial government had spent $12.7 million on the project.

The College of the Rockies at Cranbrook has two campuses. The main campus has trades and student services programs, and most of their administrative departments. The Gold Creek campus houses the Timber Framing Program, and Continuing Education Health and Safety courses. College of the Rockies has 5 regional campuses. They all have unique courses and help in serving and giving back to the society they are a part of. The regional campuses are located in Fernie, Creston, Kimberly, Invermere, and Golden.
