Courses 2020/2021:


!!The following City & Guilds course have been registered by CITB NI for grant assistance to registered in scope employers!!

The purpose of this qualification is to meet the wide ranging needs of the communications cabling industry which is part of the communication technologies sector.

We have tailored this training not only to meet the requirements of the city and guilds award. But also to give individuals the skills to carry out the work that is being carried out in Ireland and the UK at the moment.

For example we use the joint closures that are used on the projects Siro, Eircom, BT, Virgin Media (North and south of the border). We teach individuals specifically to be able to work on the activity that they are aiming to work on.

This award is one of the most important courses to complete for new entrants, such as school leavers or for adults looking for a change in career. Ideal for electricians, plumbers, or outside trades cctv installers etc.

This course requires a specific amount of practical activity. When you are with us you will work with qualified instructors, that have worked in the industry doing the job they are teaching you to do. They are not theorists brought in from another company to teach you. They will teach you in as realistic a work environment as can be.

Our centre has been put together with a practical working area, to ensure you gain the maximum benefit from this training. We will teach you to do the job, not just gain a piece of paper.

We are the only training provider making the effort to ensure learners leave with anywhere near enough practical activity corelated to real work, to enable them to do the job. Not just able to rhyme of facts and figures that a theorist that has never worked on a fibre build, says they need to know.

**We are the ONLY!! training provider on the ISLAND of IRELAND, Providing enough hands on practical activity to give anyone the ability to do the job**
