“Making the first step is the hardest. Pitman made it very easy for me to do. They offer a fantastic range of courses. The material is very easy to follow and set up in a way that makes it very easy to use. The staff in Cork have always been fantastic to me and encouraged me all the way. Even when, I felt like giving up myself. I can’t say enough about how happy I am to have taken the first step with Pitman.” KARENA HUNTER - OFFICE MANAGER DIPLOMA STUDENT

"The course suited me, working shift work I would not be able to attend most regular courses and would miss days here and there.  This course allowed me to work at my own pace and attend when suitable for me and also allowed me to work from home. All the staff were very helpful and approachable." ANN HAYES - MEDICAL SECRETARY DIPLOMA STUDENT

Student of The Month


Announcing our Student of the Month for February 2020 - Doireann Ni Thuama!

Congratulations to Doireann Ní Thuama, our Pitman Training Cork - Student of the Month for February 2020!

Doireann is studying our Medical Secretary Diploma.  

Doireann enrolled with us in September and already has 8 modules completed! She has been very dedicated to completing her Medical Secretary Diploma. Doireann comes into the centre a few evenings a week and has a great attitude towards her training. Doireann's aim before training was to secure a long-term career and over the past two months she has been working as a Clerical Officer in a hospital. Well done Doireann! 

Doireann's word of advice for anyone considering training is, 'I would 100% recommend it. Being able to upskill and fit it around your life in your own time is really great. I have been working full-time and on holidays while doing this course and it has never got in the way of being able to carry on with my life as normal. The girls in Pitman Training are also very friendly and helpful and it is a lovely place to upskill!' We all believe that Doireann is a worthy winner of the Student of the Month Award for February 2020! Well done Doireann!
