Hi There

I was wandering if anyone can advise and alarm/cctv/access courses that I do so I can approach employers?

I was looking at courses at:
ADI Gardner or Chevron training Ireland.

Cheers

You could try Technical Training Solutions Course or try to register for c&G 1851 somewhere.

To be perfectly honest with you, it isn't really something we look for on CVs in the first instance.

Relevant experience counts for more, in the same or related industries - e.g. previous experience as a sparks, or mate.

My advice would be to approach potential employers with an emphasis on the other skills you can bring to the job - customer skills, sales skills, how other experience you have is relevant.

Oh, and you'll need a five year checkable work history too, and probably you will need to submit for a CRB check.

Hi Accordfire

Thanks for your reply, Previous experience is im having the problem getting in bit of a catch 22, might try the course and then add my service and sales skills to that to try and get in on the lowest rung. Unfortunately apprenticeships here in NI are a rearity.

Sadly that's the case everywhere mate.

It's worth giving ADT and Chubb a shout - they're often willing to provide in house training too.
