As an environmental consultant I’ve had to apply lessons from every class that I took while I was at Lakeland College. I think what Lakeland does so well is that they exclude courses that aren’t necessarily applicable to the environmental industry and replace them with much more relevant courses. What makes Lakeland unique is every student who enrolls is set up to succeed. Attendance is mandatory, classes are small, and you develop a relationship with every one of your teachers. These are three qualities that Universities don’t necessarily have. As someone who was at UofA before coming to Lakeland I can honestly say that there are several reasons I would choose Lakeland first.

My time at Lakeland has helped me to succeed with my career by providing me with a thorough, detailed understanding of the conservation and reclamation process but also by providing relevant education pertaining to the oil and gas industry as well as agriculture, all of which go hand in hand.

I have been able to utilize much of what I was taught in classes such as field botany, weed id, soil classification, and soil fertility, to name a few, and implement those learning's in the vast majority of my daily tasks. The relevance of what I was taught at the college to the jobs I acquired post graduating helped set me up to be competent and confident in my career.“

“My experience at Lakeland was both educational and fun. Small classes, hands on learning, relevant labs and field work, and personable instructors all contributed to a fantastic learning opportunity.

I can say from personal experience that Lakeland college does a great job of preparing students for the working world and provides a wonderful opportunity to learn to anyone interested in the programs it offers. I would highly recommend Lakeland to anyone considering a career in the environmental field.

“The education I received at Lakeland was second to none, the course content and delivery was relevant to today’s reclamation concerns facing the Oil and Gas Industry. The combination of field labs and classroom studies provided a great learning environment. The education prepares you to enter the work force and start applying the knowledge gained immediately upon employment. In addition the programs acceptance by the Alberta Institute of Agrologist for professional designation makes you a valued employee. Overall my Lakeland experience exceeded my expectations and set me up to move forward in my career. I would recommend this program to anyone who is interested in hands on involvement in reclamation. ”

Brad Wilson graduated from Lakeland College Environmental Conservation and Reclamation Program in 2008.

"The instructors were amazing! All of them had an open-door policy and were always there when I needed help with school, or advice. After graduating, I felt confident to go and work in industry. In school I received field experience from labs which were very beneficial. The wide range of classes that I took prepared me for the many different situations that I would face in the real world."
