The Irish Ambulance Training Institute, the award winning national training institute headquartered in Ballybrit, Galway, is offering a wide range of courses over the coming months to those who wish to pursue a career in the healthcare sector.
The institute is long established in delivering courses in the first aid and emergency care fields and has now expanded its portfolio of courses to include a greater range of FETAC accredited courses, leading to recognised qualifications for healthcare assistants and home carers.
The institute is offering the most comprehensive range of healthcare training courses available in the west of the country. Courses, which commenced in early September, will run throughout the year in both Galway and Athlone. Courses on offer include the PHECC accredited emergency medical technician and emergency first responder qualifications, FETAC Level 5 certificates in nursing studies, healthcare support, and component certificates in care of the older person and occupational first aid. With such a wide range of courses on offer the institute really feels they have something on offer to anyone seeking a relevant qualification in the healthcare field.
