Students will experience the importance of smaller class sizes and individual attention as they gain valuable hands-on experience in state-of-the-art labs and facilities. Lambton College is proud to offer practical learning experiences in its human simulation lab, where students work with high-fidelity mannequins that can breathe, talk, produce vital signs and simulate the birthing process.
