“I have learned a great deal of IT skills during my time here in College of FET Kilkenny, and my typing skills have improved significantly in a short amount of time. This course is also great for people who have not been in school or college in a long time as the teachers are great to get along with and are there to help with any questions you might have and they are great to help you ease into this course. I highly recommend!”
