My experience in taking the Environmental Technology Program (ETP) at Nunavut Arctic College (NAC) was amazing.

Three of us students got to travel to Montreal for the International Polar Year conference which is held every 50 years. This was a once in a life time experience. We represented ETP and presented what ETP offers as a program, highlighting the many partnership programs available throughout the school year.

Two of us ETP students out of all Iqaluit NAC students got the opportunity to talk to the Prime Minister in 2013 during his announcement about Adult Basic Education (ABE) funding. We spoke to the Prime Minister about education and the importance of finishing high school.

I enjoyed the two years of ETP! Wonderful and great opportunities always arise for the students, and it can be very rewarding after completing the program!
