I want to thank KWETB as I cannot recommend them enough, their manufacturing technology course is the reason I am where I want to be professionally and has changed my mindset, outlook and confidence.

The manufacturing technology technician traineeship course changed my life for the better and the staff are amazing, supportive and so helpful but Kathleen Ryan went above and beyond and inspired me and my class.

You were beyond a tutor so thank you so much for everything you done for us, for inspiring us, for being so supportive, for being understanding, patient and caring, I will never forget.

KWETB also do fantastic courses on Robotics and 3D Printing, I cannot recommend them enough.

I can't praise this course enough. I completed the QQI level 6 in early 2022 and began working at Intel as a manufacturing technician directly after.

I'm currently looking forward to my final year in Technical University Dublin Bolton Street this September, studying for my degree in Engineering Reliability Management.

This level 6 has given me a fantastic base from which to build my career and Kathleen Ryan in particular has been an inspirational tutor who always goes above and beyond to help her students.

My advice is if your thinking about a career in Manufacturing to get in touch, you won't regret it.
