Are you looking for employment as a carer but need a FETAC course? 

The healthcare sector in Ireland has witnessed significant changes in the past 10 years. Increased regulation now means carers and healthcare workers are required to obtain FETAC/QQI accredited courses to work in the care sector.

HealthSET is a Galway based accredited healthcare training company specialising in a range of QQI level 5 healthcare courses. Its QQI courses are taught by highly experienced registered nurses which allows learners to gain access to up-to-date clinical practices. With high learner satisfaction rates and small class sizes, adult learners gain high quality tuition and one to one support. On these courses, carers will learn hands-on nursing care skills through assimilated scenarios and practical demonstrations under the supervision of qualified nurses. 

The home care sector remains a growth sector in Ireland, with many HealthSET graduates gaining employment in the private home care sector after completing these courses. Currently, the minimal requirement to work in the private home care sector is QQI level 5 care of the older person and QQI level 5 care skills. Care skills starts Thursday November 12 and care of the older person starts Monday November 2 in the Ballybane Enterprise Centre, Galway. These comprehensive part time courses are delivered over five days.

In addition, HealthSET is now offering QQI/FETAC Level 5 infection control and prevention starting on Saturday November 7. This practical based course is ideal for care workers working in clinical environments. 

Funding may be available to eligible participants.
