I have made enquires with FÁS training services and I understand that the person in question is currently on a waiting list for the access to offshore course in Donegal. Demand for this particular training course is very high and I am informed that there is a waiting list for the course, as a result. As with other individuals waiting for a training place on this course, the person in question will be informed at the appropriate time, and as soon as a place becomes available for him. It should also be noted that all applicants for this training require to be interviewed because of the specialist nature of the course in question.
