QQI Courses (FETAC)

Our QQI (FETAC) Level 5 and Level 6 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.

QQI Courses begin the week commencing 27th January, 2020.  There is a brief information session at 6.30pm prior to the commencement of your course.  Please bring your PPS number.
