Last year I did QQI Level 5 Certificate in Office Administration, Medical and Dental Receptionist. I found the College of Commerce most welcoming and the teachers so helpful and encouraging. I gained confidence in myself as a person and found the whole experience helped me in my future career.

My experience in the Cork College of Commerce was welcoming and professional.  I received excellent tuition and there was a very good support structure.  I developed a good exam technique and acquired practical skills which are essential for the modern office. I found the staff to be encouraging, supportive, motivating and caring.  My colleagues were also helpful and supportive throughout the course.  I am currently employed by the HSE and am happy and confident in my work place.  Everything I learned in Essential IT for the Office is relevant for my job on a day-to-day basis.
