Western Management Centre, Galway, is launching a new QQI accredited PR course. The programme is aimed at participants with an interest in PR, those who are working in the area but want to broaden their knowledge, or self-employed individuals who want to learn PR techniques to promote their own businesses in a cost effective way.
The course will cover all the essential elements of PR planning including media relations, event management, sponsorship, social media, and crisis PR, and is designed to give participants the knowledge and skills necessary to design and execute their own PR campaigns.
The programme will be held in the Western Management Centre, Dangan, and delivered by Ger Ahearne who has more than 16 years’ training and industry experience in the field of marketing communications.
The course assessment is a combination of assignments and an exam. Successful candidates will receive a QQI Level 5 award on completion of the programme.
Classes will run one night a week and will include two Saturdays to allow for group work and plenty of practical application. The programme will run from the end of February until the beginning of May.
Other QQI accredited courses starting this term include employment law and business management.
