Training Field & Props

Lakeland College Emergency Training Centre (ETC) has one of the best training fields in Canada.
 
We also do training at our remote site a few kilometers outside Vermilion.
 
Get to know more about our props. Each tile includes a description as well as video of the prop in use. Or, go to our ETC props playlist to watch these videos.
 
You can also take a virtual tour of ETC facilities.
 
Note: A new interactive map is being developed. We hope these videos will give you a better sense of ETC.
