Pitman Training recently opened their latest training centre in Kea-Lew Business Park in Portlaoise, offering year-round enrolment on over 400 courses including Medical and Legal Secretary, Office Administration, Management, Accounting & Bookkeeping, Computer Hardware, Networking, Software & Programming, Web Design, Graphic Design, Marketing and PR.
Pitman Training is Ireland’s largest independent network of training centres, with 15 centres nationwide training thousands of students each year.
Known for their practical training courses and unique and flexible training methods, Pitman Training provide an exciting and highly accessible alternative to those that might not have the time or money to return to college, but are still eager to progress their career with new skills and qualifications.
Centre manager Tomás Finneran explained how their training is very different from what you might expect from schools and colleges.
“Here in Portlaoise, we’re taking the time to understand the goals and objectives of each person that is considering training with us.
“Once we’re clear about that, we’ll create an individual training programme to meet these requirements, so the student can be sure they’ll reach their objective without wasting time or money.
“In fact, for many people, we can often ensure they can secure a promotion or new career, new skill or whatever their goal is, in just a few weeks! It’s about smarter training, not just more training.”
Pitman Training offer Diploma programmes based around careers, with their Medical and Legal Secretary Diplomas, Management Diplomas and Accounting Diplomas proving to be particularly popular with employers.
“Employers love our graduates because they gain real-world, practical skills that are relevant to their workplace, and our students love our flexible training and test times.
“They can choose the days and times they want to attend and also the length of each training session. Our training centre in Laois is open evenings and weekends, and our students can choose to train full-time, part-time or even from home using our unique blended learning approach, allowing them to upskill and secure a new qualification at times that suits them.”
Pitman Training was established over 180 years ago and has a proud reputation of delivering high quality, practical training and qualifications.
Earlier this year, Pitman Training was a finalist in the Irish Education Awards in the Best Further Education Provider category, and they were recently accredited as an Irish Business All Star organisation.
Pitman Training Certificates, Awards and Diplomas are nationally and internationally recognised and all of their training courses are accredited by The CPD Standards Office.
They also offer a range of industry standard certifications including Adobe, Microsoft, AAT, CompTIA and many more.
