Welcome to the Hinton Training Centre's home page!

The Hinton Training Centre plays a key role in ensuring the sustainability of the natural resources mandated under the Department of Alberta Environment and Sustainable Resource Development's portfolio. One of our key functions is to develop and deliver training to forest and land managers and fire suppression personnel to ensure the sustainability of those resources and to protect life and property.

HTC lies nestled in the foothills of the Canadian Rocky Mountains, just three hours drive west of Edmonton. It offers a rustic atmosphere enhanced by the many natural features of Alberta's forested foothills.
