About this form

The purpose of this booking form is to gather profile information about participants on programmes funded by Skillnets from the National Training Fund through the Department of Education & Skills (DES). Only aggregated participant data will be reported to the DES. Separately, Skillnets will inform the Department of Social Protection (DSP) about the attendance of individuals in receipt of income support from DSP on short courses (i.e. 20 days or less). This is part of an arrangement with the Department, which supports the participation of its clients on Skillnets programmes.

Please Note: The number of free places available on this course are limited, and may already be allocated. In filling in this form, you are requesting a place on this course as opposed to making a confirmed booking. A member of our training team will be in touch closer to the course start date to advise if we are in a position to offer you a place on this course. If we are not able to offer you a place on this course, your request will be kept on file for future courses.
