Cosmos Group of Companies is comprised of three organizations that are either profit oriented or non-profit based.Our group of companies has been offering services in and around Central Alberta for the past fifty years. Originally established as Cosmos Enterprises in 1972, this long-standing agency has evolved into a well-reputed provincial leader, and an integral part of Central Alberta’s community.

My name is Scott M. I was previously a student at Cosmos Computer Leaning Centre. While I was a student at Cosmos I developed a lot of essential skills including computer use, writing, oral communication, thinking and continuous learning skills, just to name a few. The Cosmos Teacher (Elvino A.) supported my skills development through one-on-one meetings, training in all relevant Microsoft Suite Programs. The experience I had with Cosmos has gave me the skills and confidence to start my own business and "excel" at life! Elvino A. has been one of the most inspiration influences I have ever met. I watched as he would go from student to student and change the way he would teach to that individual student. Theories and explanations would be specifically spoken for that student to understand (wow! the man can teach). My life has changed so much since I took his course, thank you so much Cosmos and thank you Elvino.
