From the IAA themselves. I heard about it from one of my customers, I work in the iaviation business.

Call the IAA on 016718655 and ask for Brian Joyce or Claire O'Donoghue

Or pm me your email address and I'l email you the course info.

Cheers

Hi,

Just came accross this post now, I started the Dip. in September, definatly recommend it if anyone is thinking of it next year.

Doing my PPL at the moment and planning to go on commercial so it helps to have something extra on the CV.

It's only 10 days in class per academic year so blends well with work and training. There's a big emphasis on flexibality, which really helps too, so if I can't make it to one class I can switch no problem.

PM me if you want any more info

Why does it have to be all PM's, its a public course so make available here for viewing for all. It sounds interesting, so post away and if nobody wants to just email me it then.

My reason for this is that some people may feel more comfortable sending a PM than posting a supposable 'stupid' question shown in view of all.

Feel free to post a reply, it really makes no difference and don't be under the impression I am keeping anything under wraps, I haven't given this impression although your reply implies this.

If you have any questions on the course fire away by all means.

Here's a link to the IAA website that will give you some more info;

Is it not the case that you have to be employed in the area to get into the course? I enquired about it in first year of my course in DIT and was told it wasn't open to the public.

It only opened up to the public this year but most of the lads are employed in the industry and are sponsored by their company to go.

Just to be clear it's for the aviation and transport sectors so you have Bus Eireann and Dublin Bus lads there too, although the vast majority are employed in the aviation industry.

So far, along with myself there's only one other fella I came across that wasn't involved in either sector but as with myself he did want to get into it.

Hope this helps.

Unforunately it came on stream a bit too late for me. Looks like I'll be doing MSc in International Business as thats as close as they have at the moment for beyond the Level 8s.
