The Manufacturing Technician and Engineering Apprenticeship Programme, based in their 140,000 sq. ft. manufacturing facility in Castlecomer, offers fantastic opportunities for both professional and personal development.

The two year programme comprises of 15 week off-the-job training to LIT or another participating institute of technology per year and the remaining time will be on the job training both within their 140,000 sq. ft. manufacturing facility and on their active projects across Ireland.
