Program Overview


As a Precision Machinist you could create something that could become an integral part of an airplane or car, a piece of surgical equipment, or a major industrial machine. If you like to pay attention to detail and have mechanical aptitude, this program may be just what you’re looking for.

You will learn how to take a mechanical blueprint and physically produce the part it describes, and how to operate lathes, drill presses, vices, micrometers, and milling machines to create the precise component required by technical drawings.

After graduation, if you choose to continue your CNC training, you may apply for entrance into the second year of the NBCC CNC Machining program.

Red Seal


The most successful path to a Red Seal as a machinist begins with the Precision Machinist program. This program enables you to earn 30 hours of apprenticeship time for each week of training and write the apprenticeship year 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 Red Seal 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 Red Seal gives you the ability to work anywhere in Canada without further testing or certification.
