Fast track option to the Certificate in Applied Management – available for June 12th start!

Are your managers HIQA compliant regarding management qualifications?

To address concerns with regard to HIQA compliance, the OTC will deliver a fast track version of the current Certificate in Applied Management to a very limited number of participants who sign up before June 12th.

This will involve delivering ‘Key Management Skills’ (10 QQI HET credits)’ immediately and ‘Managing Service Quality’ (10 QQI HET credits) in July.

Certification of both these programmes/modules, issued by OTC, can be on file for HIQA review by early September 2017. QQI certificates will be on file by end October/November. PICS/PPIMs that avail of the fast track option may complete the remaining content for the full programme starting in October.

This course will suitably up skill those participants who have roles such as Person In Charge (PIC) and who are concerned about their capacity to deliver quality services within the current regulatory environment.

Course details are also available on our website HERE.

Online Application deadline is June 12th.

Who Is This Course For?

The course is for current/prospective first line supervisors and managers who are looking to enhance their leadership, motivational, team-building and management skills on an accredited course developed specifically for the non-profit and human services sector.

It is also perfect for those wishing to get a head start and commence their management studies this Summer instead of waiting until Autumn for the next commencement of the Certificate in Applied Management.


The Student View

‘The course gave a very good overview of what is involved in leadership. The area of teamwork, group dynamics, how teams evolve and how best to motivate your team was also very interesting and gave a lot of food for thought.’
