Program Overview


Learn how to plan, install, test, inspect, troubleshoot, and service all types of industrial electrical equipment. You’ll take courses in the essentials of electricity, wiring and circuits, as well as  advanced courses in automation and motion control, programmable logic controls, industrial
communication systems, and computer aided design.

The Industrial Electrical Technology program also prepares you for a variety of roles by teaching you construction and residential wiring methods. What you learn in class, you’ll demonstrate and test in a variety of on-site electrical lab areas, giving you hands-on training and exposure to real life working conditions to prepare you for a career as an industrial electrician.

Red Seal

The most successful path to a Red Seal as an industrial electrician begins with the Industrial Electrical Technology program. This program enables you to earn 30 hours of apprenticeship time for each week of training and write two years of apprenticeship block exams, 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.
