Summerside, PE - Forty nine students from Holland College's Correctional Officer and Law and Security programs celebrated their graduation with ceremonies held recently at the Jubilee Theatre in Summerside.
Graduating students Clint Meade of the Correctional Officer Program and Joel Simms of the Law and Security Program, spoke on behalf of the graduates. Guest Speaker for the graduation was Phillip LeBlanc, Sheriff with the Province of Prince Edward.
The 36-week Correctional Officer program instils the knowledge and skills needed for a career in federal and provincial correctional services. Since the skills are transferable to other areas of criminal justice, graduates frequently find work in related fields.
The 36-week Law and Security program is designed to prepare students with the knowledge and skills that lead to employment opportunities in federal and provincial security agencies, as well as private security companies. This program is officially endorsed by the Canadian Society for Industrial Security Inc.
