“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 September - Rory O'Neill!


  • Rory is a Project Management Diploma student.
  • Since the first day Rory came to the centre to start training on the Microsoft Office Award last May, he has shown great enthusiasm and willingness to learn. He successfully completed this and has now moved on to study the Project Management Diploma. It had been several years since he did any kind of training or study but Rory settled into the routine of coming into the centre to study very quickly and within the first couple of weeks he was so familiar with all the staff that it was like we knew him for years!! Rory is great to ask questions and is brilliant for keeping in touch and communicating with everyone here. He is very motivated and committed to his course, if he cannot make into the centre to study, he will log on from home and will ensure he reaches his own target of training hours every week. We really feel that Rory is a deserving candidate for the September Student of the Month award as his drive, dedication, enthusiasm and general positive attitude are fantastic examples to all students.
