Due to the economic downturn many people who lost their jobs are choosing to retrain in the hope of returning to work
A training course which is proving to be particularly popular with those who previously worked in the construction sector is a Water Meter Installer course. This practical course, delivered by Chevron Training, a private training provider, ensures that learners possess the knowledge and skills to competently install domestic water meters.
This skill will prove to be beneficial to many former construction workers who are currently seeking employment as the installation of water meters to more than one million homes is due to begin this year.
The roll out of domestic water meters will provide considerable commercial opportunities for trained water meter installers as up to 6000 jobs will created through this initiative.
Chevron has already trained more than 300 people as water meter installers. For more information on this employment focused training programme call 1890 252 647 or visit www.chevrontraining.ie.
