Builded at the Bombardier Test Track in Valcourt, (Maricourt) and with adjacent fields, it was the first education centre at the time, and supported by the Grand Prix Saint-Laurent and Bombardier. Financial support was provided by the Government of Canada, through the program RELAIS and support from Bombardier. The project launched 5 November, 1984, with the goal to offer security, technique and drive testing.

Although the very first snowmobile educational center was created mainly thanks to the involvement of the Grand Prix Saint-Laurent and Bombardier , the major work on the site made it possible to redo the racetrack of the Yvon-Duhamel Circuit, a set up site for trailers and snowmobiles, as well as three (3) parking lots.
