Programme Overview

The transition from University or college life to the world of work requires substantial application and attention. This stand-alone Level 9 CPD Certificate programme (which is fully accredited by DIT) has been specifically designed in partnership with leading employers to allow recent graduates (up to 12 months out) to get to grips quicker with the professional standards expected of those working in engineering-led teams and organisations. 

Participants will understand what is expected of them, how they should behave and what they can do to accelerate their professional development and career prospects.

Programme Structure

The CPD Certificate programme equates to one DIT module and is delivered on a part-time basis comprising six mandatory module components, approximately one weekday per month, for six months. Each module component is supplemented by pre & post component assignments and learning contract agreements. 

All module components are 9.00am-5.00pm and will take place in Limerick Education Centre, Marshal House, Dooradoyle Road, Limerick.

  • Expert Tutors - all tutors have been selected for their industry expertise, their acknowledged contribution to the profession of engineering and/or their unique knowledge at the forefront of a chosen field.
  • Workplace Mentoring - each student is supported by a workplace mentor to guide and optimise their learning.
  • Team-Based Learning - a dozen or more engineers from different organisations of different sizes from different sectors will take part in each class.
