Career Focused Training Courses

By 2013 it is planned that forthcoming water charges will be levied on Irish households based on the individual rate of consumption. In response to this  Avondhu Blackwater Partnership Ltd has teamed with Chevron Training and is now offering Water Meter Installation courses which will be ideally suited to the person who wishes to up-skill and develop expertise ahead of this initiative.

The roll-out of the 1.2 million domestic Water Meters has the potential to create up to 6,000 jobs in Ireland and will be projected to take place over a period of three years. For example the implementation of water metering systems for homes in the UK has brought about an average water consumption saving of 16% per household.

The Water Meter Installation training is being provided for those individuals who have experience in the construction sector and those with traditional trades who now find themselves unemployed, underemployed or facing redundancy or job insecurity.

The overall aim is to facilitate individuals to re-direct their existing skills from the declining construction sector to the more opportunistic and growing renewable sector.  We aim to match the skills and experience of each individual with the training offered in order to ensure that that maximum benefits for each individual is achieved.

The Water Meter Installation courses will be held over three days on the following dates: Tuesday 7th to Thursday 9th of June and Thursday 16th to Saturday 18th of June both held at the Fermoy Education Centre in The Anderson Centre. The course is funded under the Rural Development Programme 2007-2013.
