New partnership to give PEI businesses free online courses

October 16, 2013

Holland College, the PEI government, and Bluedrop Performance Learning have established a new partnership that will allow local businesses to benefit from 2,000 free, online professional development course bundles. “eForcePEI” will use Bluedrop’s online learning platform CoursePark.com to provide access to courses from leading publishers and subject experts. “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,” says Holland President Brian McMillan. PEI is supporting this project with $275,000 in support for Bluedrop and a further $242,000 to help Holland with delivery and promotion of the eForcePEI initiative. PEI News Release
