Thank you for taking time to visit our website which is aimed at giving learners, business and stakeholders general information on the Training Centre. We offer a wide range of programmes delivered on a full-time and part-time basis. Our emphasis is on the creation and provision of training courses which deliver practical skills and competencies, matched to the needs of local and national industry and with clearly defined measurable outcomes. In the Training centre, courses will always be delivered in a training environment that insofar as is practicable replicates the real workplace and which is equipped to the best industry specified standards.
In addition, the work undertaken by learners is real practical work, with tasks and project work linked to defined outcomes with incremental levels of complexity. All courses are certified and lead to qualifications ranging from Level 3 to Level 6 on the NFQ - National Framework of Qualifications, or third-party specialised certification.
We hope that you will find a course that will interest you and help you achieve your potential.

them. I would highly recommend this course for anybody changing careers or starting out in IT"

and approachable at all times. Today I am working in Athlone Castle, in a position I am greatly enjoying, due to the help I
received from the Staff in the Athlone Training Centre”

"The pneumatic module was very beneficial to me as I had never worked with pneumatics before and now I am grateful because I work with electrical and pneumatic controlled robots everyday. This, along with my now broadened knowledge of working with PLC's is what landed me the opportunity of a life time"
