Holland College is the provincial community college for the Canadian province of Prince Edward Island (PEI). The Holland College Marine Training Center (HCMTC) is located in the city of Summerside, Prince Edward Island, just minutes from the Confederation Bridge.

The Center has been providing Transport Canada-approved training to the marine industry for more than three decades. In addition to the full range of certification from deckhand to master mariner, the center offers a number of specialized courses and customized training.
