Kevin Holm began his career as an electrical apprentice in 1994 performing residential and commercial installations. In 1996, he decided to go to Sir Sandford Fleming College in Peterborough for the three-year Electronic Engineering Technology Program. Kevin joined Bell Canada Inc. in 1998 where he worked hard during the summer months as a Telephone Installation and Repair Technician.
After he successfully graduated as and Electronic Engineering Technologist, Kevin began working full time hours with Bell until he accepted a position with Expertech Network Installations (Bell Canada Subsidiary) as a Central Office Installation Technician in 2001. He installed, maintained, tested and commissioned power related equipment and electronics in central offices across Ontario owned by Bell Canada.
In 2006, Kevin accepted a position with Hydro Ottawa as a Substation Electrician (High Voltage) apprentice. There he gained hands on experience installing, maintaining and commissioning power distribution equipment in substations owned by Hydro Ottawa.
In order to be closer to family, Kevin and his wife Kelli decided to move their family closer to home after he accepted a position with Atomic Energy of Canada (AECL) as an Electrical Designer. As an electrical designer, Kevin lead numerous electrical design jobs in a nuclear environment and ensured they were installed according to all applicable procedures, standards and the Ontario Electrical Safety Code. In the spring of 2011, Kevin was asked by management to write a companywide electrical safety requirements document for Atomic Energy of Canada (AECL). This evolved into a full time position leading electrical safety for AECL, now known as Canadian Nuclear Laboratories (CNL).
In the fall of 2014, Kevin received a Distinguished Merit Award from the CEO at CNL for demonstrating strong leadership skills in approving Electrical Safety and reducing the amount of near misses. In 2015, Kevin also was recognized nationally when he received a Canada wide Electrical Safety Champion award from Electrical Business Magazine. He sits on two Canadian Standards Association (CSA) Committees on Workplace Electrical Safety and Maintenance of Electrical Systems.
Kevin is committed to providing quality electrical work and safe installations.
