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 props master video to see all the props in action.
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.
