Education and Training Boards (ETBs) provide a wide range of courses to meet the needs of both individuals and employers. Each ETB determines the provision and location of particular courses and in doing so takes a range of factors into consideration. A full list of Further Education and Training (FET) courses are available at www.fetchcourses.ie.
I would encourage the individual in question to make an appointment with the Adult Education Guidance Service (AEGS) in their local ETB; in this instance Dublin and Dun Laoghaire ETB. The AEGS provides guidance and information to FET learners and potential learners before, during and after training and can go through the various FET options and supports available to them. This service is confidential and free of charge.
