QQI Courses

Morning & Evening Classes in South Dublin

QQI Courses (FETAC)

Our QQI Level 5 and Level 6 minor certification courses support those in employment, those who would like to upskill, develop back to work skills or want to start their own business. We prepare participants for jobs by providing the skills, knowledge, competence and confidence required to work in their chosen sector.

Our courses also prepare students for progression to further studies as successful students may apply through the Higher Education Links Scheme to a range of third-level courses.

Information & Important Dates

QQI Courses begin the week commencing 24th January, 2022. 
An information session is available but not compulsory from 6.40 on the evening the course commences.

Where work experience is required, we recommend that students obtain work experience before the course commences.  In addition, students should apply for Garda Vetting to the institution where they are undertaking their work experience.  Students do not need Garda Vetting when doing work experience through their own job.
