First Choice for First RespondersAdrenalin junkies often choose fire and emergency services careers. But even when your heart is racing, you need to know how to make good decisions to protect lives and property.
Lakeland College’s Emergency Training Centre offers four pre-employment programs with a quality mix of field work and theory to prepare you for the front lines of first response.
- Our Emergency Services Technology (EST) program is a unique program. You’ll receive core training in both emergency medical response and firefighting, then specialize in one of those disciplines.
- Our 12-week Firefighter Training Program covers all the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 1001 Standards.
- If you need to earn your emergency medical responder (EMR) first, take it at the emergency training centre in Vermilion.
