Part-Time Day & Evening Courses

CDCFE offers an exciting range of part-time courses during the day and evening, now celebrating its 50th year in education!   Our courses are designed to improve a student’s competence; skills and to prepare one for further and higher education and training. Our part-time courses are also for those who wish to return to education for the enjoyment of learning itself and/or for the social interaction. Anyone from the age of 16+ is welcome to enrol! Younger students may avail of courses to participate in the Gaisce awards and/or to have that extra qualification for entry to better opportunities for work or further study.

When registering for our certified courses, please ensure you provide your DOB; PPSN; Gender & Name (as you want it to appear on a certificate). For most occupations you will need a NIL Garda Vetting report. When you have registered for your part-time course, please download the Komeer app and sign up to CDCFE!  Communication to the students will be via the Komeer App!

Community Involvement

A distinctive feature, which the college is proud of, is its ability to respond to the educational needs of the local working population, community & groups plus the individual. CDCFE’s Further Education Part-Time [FEPT] Department welcomes any request or query for new programs from an individual or group of people.
