A new partnership between Holland College, Government of Prince Edward Island and Bluedrop Performance learning will allow Island businesses to benefit from 2,000 free, online professional development course bundles, says Innovation and Advanced Learning Minister Allen Roach.

“The new eForcePEI partnership will provide learning opportunities to small and medium-sized businesses and allow Island enterprises to become more productive and more competitive,” said Minister Roach. “This is a vital part of the Island economy and eForcePEI will allow us to help business people learn in a way that is cost-effective and widely accessible.”

eForcePEI will use Bluedrop’s online learning platform in order to provide access to courses from leading publishers and subject experts. The courses are expected to appeal to small and medium-sized business, non-profit organizations, as well as to individuals interested in improving their skills and knowledge.

“Holland College is pleased to partner with the Province of Prince Edward Island and Bluedrop to deliver this important initiative. We are committed to supporting the sustainability of our province by providing training opportunities in a variety of ways to give all Islanders the ability to participate in life-long learning. eForcePEI helps us to accomplish that goal.”

SkillsPEI is supporting this project with $275,000 in support for Bluedrop and a further $242,000 to help Holland College with delivery and promotion of the eForcePEI initiative. Funding is provided under the Labour Market Development Agreement.
