3rd Canadian Division Training Centre

3rd Canadian Division Training Centre (3 CDTC) is a centre for leadership and formative training.  We produce well-trained, well-prepared soldiers and junior leaders whom represent the future of their trades, regiments, corps and the Canadian Army.  At the Headquarters & Operations we coordinate all activities at the Training Centre, but also with other formations within the 3rd Canadian Division Training Centre Canadian Division, to provide high individual training for all Army personnel in Western Canada.

Annually, we typically run 51 courses in our 4 companies and oversee approximately 10 courses conducted by the Reserve Canadian Brigade Groups.
