The marine industry is growing and thousands of job opportunities exist right now.
To help meet this demand and diversify the workforce, the federal government, through the Oceans Protection Plan, is providing $2.5 million in bursaries for women and Indigenous peoples to pursue marine education. As a woman or Indigenous person, you may qualify to have 90% of the course cost covered.

Commercially trained surface supplied hard hat divers are referred to by many as underwater welders. Here at the Holland College Marine Training Center underwater welding is our specialty and we also train our underwater welders to perform all the other commercial diving techniques required of a person employed in this exciting career.
In this program, you will learn about diving equipment, systems and procedures, and you will progress into courses on inspection, underwater welding, construction techniques and more. Surface cutting and welding courses are taught on campus before progressing to underwater techniques. Various dive sites throughout Atlantic Canada expose you to the realities of working in tidal waters and strong currents, preparing you to work in any body of water worldwide.
The Marine Training Centre has been providing Transport Canada-approved training for more than three decades. The centre has earned an international reputation for its exceptional quality of instruction, excellent facilities and convenient location. In addition to the full range of certification from Deckhand to Master Mariner, the centre offers a number of specialized courses.
Welcome to Aquatic Resources at StFX – an interdisciplinary studies program – focused on water, environment and sustainability – offered in Sciences or Arts.
