Pitman Training is Kerry’s fastest growing training institution offering career-specific training courses in business, Computer and Office Skills such as Medical and Legal Secretary, Office Administration, Marketing and PR.

The Pitman Training centre in Kerry is only one of a network of Pitman Training centres which now make-up the largest independent training network in Ireland,

The Pitman Training name has been synonymous with quality training for generations starting out with one shorthand school in 1870. Today, Pitman Training is unique in being not only the oldest and longest running independent training organisation, but also for having one of the largest networks of training centres in the world. There are more than 100 Pitman Training Centres all over the UK, Ireland and the Middle East, training over 50,000 people every year.

In fact, Pitman Training is now the largest independent training network in Ireland offering local solutions to businesses and individuals alike.  The organisation offers a choice of training options including full and part-time courses both at their centre and from home using their unique home-study system.

There are currently 16 Pitman Training centres across Ireland; in Dublin and in towns such as Dundalk, Galway, Gorey, Mullingar, Sligo, Kilkenny, Cork, Belfast, Waterford and Wexford. In 1992, Pitman Training launched a programme to expand its training network given the demand for highly practical career-based skills, a sector that the Institutes of Technology and Universities were struggling to address. Since then, Pitman Training has grown steadily to a network of 90 locations throughout Ireland and the UK with the first Pitman Training Centre in Ireland opening its doors in Dublin in 1994.

As well as an ever-expanding range of courses for business, ICT and professionals, Pitman Training have developed their services further having gained FETAC government accreditation for Quality Assured programme delivery. Another expanding market for Pitman Training is the move towards online and home-study training with more and more Pitman Training courses available online. Training Centres can therefore continue to deliver courses to individuals no matter where they are located.
