Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some answers to some of the more commonly asked questions, but if you don’t find your answer here please contact us


What Courses are we running

For our current course timetable: View our Courses


How are courses selected to be run?

Each member company is contacted with regard to their individual training needs. This process is also supplemented by requests as the year progresses and companies gain a clearer picture of their training requirements. Companies are free to contact the network manager at any time with course specific requests or modified content on any advertised courses. Where possible these will be accommodated.  The network operates on a first-come first-served basis.


Content, duration and dates can be modified to suit the requirements of participants.

How does the subvention mechanism work?

All courses are charged at full cost up-front. The network subsequently refunds participants on a quarterly basis. The network is a not-for-profit organisation and is dependent on grant monies from Skillnets Ireland & member companies which comes in tranches. This mechanism prevents any potential cash flow difficulties. Subvention is typically up to 20%.


Do I need to have chosen a vendor and content to make a request?

No—let us know what your business requirement is and the network manager can source a vendor and content to suit.
