Our business successfully used the Waterford Chamber Skillnet program to recently train associates on site. We evaluated training options for our ScrumMaster training and certification needs. What set the Waterford Chamber Skillnet apart was great communication, transparency of costs, value for money and the location of training. We are really enjoying the proactive nature of the relationship and the help in covering key skills gaps for our staff in Waterford. I highly recommend joining due to the professionalism of the service provided.

Dr Leigh Griffin - Red Hat

Our relationship with the Waterford Chamber Skillnet is very important for our business. Each year we work in partnership to identify learning and development needs to suit our requirements. Key to this is the ability to deliver subsidised programmes onsite, and this allows us to run further learning and development programmes. I find the Network team professional, flexible, informative and supportive. Their service and performance has been excellent, so much so that I constantly sell the benefit of being part of the network to any other organisations I meet!
