I would certainly recommend the QQI L6 in Cloud Computing in St. Johns College. It was in instrumental in helping me progress straight from the course into full-time employment as a support Engineer with the market leader in Virtualisation products.
The Cloud Computing course at St. John’s Central College provided me with skills and expertise to gain successful employment in a leading international company based in Cork. The modules studied were up to date with industry standard. Links with FIT and local industry paved a way for me to secure a job as Technical Support Engineer.
As well as having the immediate effect of allowing me to secure an internship and subsequently full time position at my current company it has also laid a solid foundation for securing a position in any of the other companies in this sector. I felt the learning was tailored so well that I was confident when I started my role that I would be perfectly prepared for whatever was expected of me. The Lecturing staff were supportive and up to date with the latest technologies and provided me with the guidance necessary to help me gain the confidence I needed in my abilities. I would highly recommend this course to anyone wanting to upskill to get back to work.
