The Carpentry program is designed to provide students with the working knowledge and skills necessary to enter the carpentry area of the construction industry.
Students are introduced to all aspects of the carpentry trade, and acquire an understanding of how a building is structurally supported and protected from the elements. Through classroom, lab and on site training, students are introduced to the building layout, framing, roof system, interior and exterior finish. Safe operation of hand and power tools is taught.
Students who complete the program can earn up to 1,360 hours towards their apprenticeship requirement, which in turn will lead them to the status of a Red Seal licensed carpenter.

Red Seal Information
The most successful path to a Red Seal as a carpenter begins with the Carpentry program. This program enables you to earn 1,360 hours and write one block exam, which puts you well on your way to Red Seal certification. Upon graduation, once you are working with a suitable employer, you will register as an apprentice to complete your journey to challenge the Interprovincial Exam. When you register, Apprenticeship PEI will give you credit for the hours earned and block exams passed while you were at Holland College.
The Interprovincial Red Seal gives you the ability to work anywhere in Canada without further testing or certification. The Red Seal is recognized as the Interprovincial standard of excellence for your chosen trade and is the designation most employers will ask for.
