Coming to Holland College was the best decision I ever made. I am currently a second-year Accounting Technology student as well as a graduate of the Business Administration program. My first two years at the college were an amazing experience! I made tons of friends, and started helping with the Student Union’s Student Association early in my first year. At Holland College you are surrounded by talented staff and students who are eager to help you with anything you need. Holland College is renowned for its small class sizes and one on one attention, allowing for a unique and productive learning environment. The Holland College Student Union is the voice of students across all of our campuses. We provide services such as a health and dental plan, Aspiria Counselling service, and two nurse practitioners. We also plan and host events that all students are encouraged to attend, and are always a great time! We are always looking for new, fresh ideas and would love to hear from you. If you would like to learn more about the Student Union, visit hcsu.ca or email me at supresident@hollandcollege.com.

Sincerely, Amanda Myers President, Student Union

D E G R E E PAT H WAYS A great blend of college and university! Degree pathways such as articulation agreements and transfer credits give you the opportunity to begin your studies at one institution and finish at another. Holland College has more than 150 agreements with universities and other post-secondary institutions across Canada, in the U.S. and overseas. These articulation agreements give you the opportunity to earn a university degree in as little as two years after you have your Holland College diploma. ACC R E D I T E D P R O G R A M Accredited programs are recognized across Canada as having met national academic standards. If you are planning to work in Canada, a diploma from a nationally accredited program will ensure that you receive full credit for your training, regardless of where you go. D I S TA N C E E D U C AT I O N Programs that offer a distance education option give students who cannot attend classes on campus the opportunity to continue their education via the Internet, off-site in their home or office, or by a combination of delivery methods such as a blend of classroom time and online learning. If you are unable to relocate to attend college, or are working full time but would still like to upgrade your skills, one of these programs may be just what you need.

APPRENTICESHIP TRAINING Apprenticeship training begins after you finish your program at Holland College and are working full time with a suitable employer. When you are working with a suitable employer, you register as an apprentice, and Apprenticeship PEI gives you credit for the hours earned and block exams passed while you were at Holland College. Each trade has a certain number of hours an apprentice must complete before he or she can take block training and move up to the next level. Once you have completed the required number of blocks and worked the required number of hours for your trade, you can earn your Interprovincial Red Seal by passing an exam. An Interprovincial Red Seal, which is the mark of excellence and the designation most employers will ask for, gives you the ability to work anywhere in Canada. The most successful path to an Interprovincial Red Seal begins with a full-time Holland College program. For more information about apprenticeship training in PEI visit apprenticeship.pe.ca. For information on apprenticeship training in other provinces, visit the apprenticeship branch of the provincial government for that province.
