Retail Programme Launch

We're delighted to announce that together with ISME, the Irish Small & Medium Enterprises Association, we’re launching a world-class on-line certified training programme for retailers and their staff.  This programme provides retailers throughout the country the opportunity to improve their retail skills and gain certification, without taking time away from work.


At the launch, Minister for Trade and Commerce, Billy Kelleher, T.D., commented, “In a period when up-skilling is essential and time is scarce, this programme offers all retailers and their staff the opportunity of gaining world-class certified skills.”


“We’re using leading edge technology in developing and delivering this programme while at the same time making the content relevant to the local SME retailers of Ireland” added Brenda Farrell, M.D., Total Training.


Mark Fielding, Chief Executive, ISME, said that “ISME Skillnet is delighted to provide funding for this certified training, which is critical to the improvement of skills in retail SMEs - the corner stone of many communities.

In addition, the unemployed can participate free of charge; this includes anyone on job seekers allowance/ benefit, even if they are working on reduced hours ”.  ‘This initiative for the retail trade is opportune, timely and cost effective, allowing staff to upskill in an innovative and flexible manner, which will help retain staff and improve the prospects of the unemployed,’ concluded Fielding.
