Past Courses held in the EDI Centre in Longford include Payroll, Bookkeeping, Reception Skills, Traditional Skills, First Aid, Manual Handling and more

The EDI Centre has run a wide range of Adult Education and training courses since we were established in 1998.

The majority of our courses range from QQI level 3 to QQI level 6 but we also deliver a number of non-accredited courses such as Digital Skills and where possible a number of free courses.  Tutors on all our courses encourage learners to fully participate in order to get the most from their time on the course of their choice.

Testimonials from Past Students

I successfully completed the Traditional & Conservation Skills Training, Level 5 at EDI Centre.  I successfully gained employment with Oldstone Conservations, where I am now Site Manager, overseeing a number of prestigious conservation projects, i.e. GPO, Trinity College, Dame Street and currently a large residential house in Dublin

Long-term unemployed with no life structure.  Attended pre-employment in EDI Centre where I received confidence building one-one mentoring, job preparation and interview skills and techniques and upskilling. Now in full time employment for 17 years and proud father of three adorable children and partner.      

Before I started the pre apprenticeship course, I was working part time in the cash and carry in Longford. I enjoy doing the course, its interesting. I also like doing it at the edi centre. I hope to do an SNA course after the pre apprenticeship course and I believe that this course has prepared me to do so.
