The Construction Electrical program gives you fundamental knowledge about electricity and its applications, and prepares you to work in residential and commercial settings assembling, installing, testing, maintaining, servicing, and operating various electrical systems and equipment. You will move from the classroom to the lab, getting plenty of experience installing power and lighting systems, signal and alarm systems, emergency lighting, communication equipment, motors, and automation and control systems. All the while you will be learning how to follow the National Building Code, the Canadian Electrical Code, and other safety requirements.

The most successful path to a Red Seal as a construction electrician begins with the Construction Electrical 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 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.
