      Hello Sophia, EHC’s Dressmaking Certificate program is designed for self directed employment as well as the foundation program to enter the EHC Couturier/Tailoring Diploma program. The Diploma program is designed for self directed employment or free lance work, as well as entry level positions for apprenticeships. Both programs are recognized by the Advanced Innovation and Advanced Education government department of Alberta, Canada. As such, there is no equivalent for our Certificate and Diploma programs. The entire curriculum is unique and original, written by the Founder, based on her education and 60 plus years of professional experience in the trade of couturier and tailor in Europe and Canada.
      The reason that Ecole Holt Couture was established and its sole existence is to preserve and pass on traditional practical skills with its related professional technical knowledge not currently being taught in fashion or design institutions. EHC programs combine theory with relevant practical experience in structured modules via an apprenticeship like experience – so very much like full immersion learning. Cheers! J
