Hetland attended school at Watson, Saskatchewan then studied at the Agricultural College in Fargo, North Dakota. He became a farmer by career, a municipal councillor from 1929 to 1932 and a school trustee from 1931 to 1943.[1]

He was first elected to Parliament at the Humboldt riding in the 1949 general election. After serving one term in the House of Commons, the Humboldt riding had been disbanded and Hetland campaigned at the new Humboldt—Melfort riding but lost to Hugh Alexander Bryson of the Co-operative Commonwealth Federation.
