METAC Training is the largest energy training and assessment centre in Ireland and the UK and trains approximately 2,700 people annually. Our realistic training facilities equip people with practical skills for the modern workforce that are nationally recognised by SOLAS, QQI, City & Guilds, BLUEflame Certification, Bord Gais and OFTEC, amongst others. All courses we run are independently certified and verified by external agencies.
In September 2010, we invested and installed a 16 metre 6KW wind turbine and accompanying Photovoltaic systems at our centre which was supported and grant aided by Laois Partnership Ltd. making us the first and only training centre to do so. This facility now allows us to expand our renewable energy training to incorporate wind training.
On completion of our courses all participants are equipped with practical skills that are nationally recognised by SOLAS, Bord Gais, City & Guilds and OFTEC.
Since late 2010, we have expanded our range of training to incorporate business, computers, vocational and hobby courses. We decided to increase our range of courses to meet the needs of people looking for quality training and assessment which will provide them with qualifications recognized by FETAC/QQI amongst others.
