The Electromechanical Technology program is an excellent program to give you a broad base of training that can lead to two Red Seal trades. This program currently enables you to earn 30 hours of apprenticeship time per week of training and write the first block exam towards a Red Seal as an Industrial Electrician and the first block exam for a Red Seal Industrial Mechanic (Millwright). Upon graduation, once you are working with a suitable employer and have chosen which Red Seal you wish to pursue, you will register as an apprentice to complete your journey to challenge the Red Seal exam. When you register, Apprenticeship PEI will give you credit for any hours earned and block exams passed while you were at Holland College relating to your chosen trade.
A Red Seal gives you the ability to work anywhere in Canada without further testing or certification.
This program has degree pathways, giving you the opportunity to receive credit for your Holland College diploma when you continue your education. For a complete list of agreements, visit the Degree Pathways page.
