Getting Technical - More IT Courses launched in January 2012
IT Technical courses are for people who want to be able to fix computer problems, install systems and generally look techie and impressive.
The starting point for the IT Technical profession is A+, which is a low-cost investment in a course covering the industry standard CompTIA syllabus (recognized worldwide). Having gained your qualifications and proved your skills you can look forward to a job manning IT Help Desks or Hotlines and then progress, with further training, to higher level IT technical careers.
The IT and Technical sector is one of the few industries in Ireland with a skills shortage…get these skills and employers will snap you up. We already have many success stories of students who start these courses and get job offers before ever completing their courses!
