Holland College, PEI partner to offer correctional services program at reduced cost


Holland College’s Atlantic Police Academy and the Government of Prince Edward Island have partnered to offer the Accelerated Correctional Officer Training Program to PEI residents at a reduced cost. Students in the five-month program learn skills related to intervention and de-escalation, crisis management, Canadian law, ethics and professionalism, and workplace health and safety. Three seats in the program are reserved for BIPOC students, who will receive a full tuition subsidy. The Canada-PEI Labour Market Development Agreement and Workforce Development Agreement will provide other students with a 70% tuition subsidy.
