Fuzion Announces Training Partnership with Independent Colleges Ireland

15 September 2011

Fuzion, one of Ireland’s leading full service Public Relations agencies, has announced details of an exciting new association with Independent Colleges Ireland.

Beginning in October, Independent Colleges will begin a new Diploma Course in partnership with Fuzion titled 'PR in the Digital Era'. The 12 week course, which will take place at the college’s premises on Dawson St in Dublin city centre, will offer participants a jargon free, practical approach to PR with a particular emphasis on social media and online PR.

The course is aimed at both graduates who are looking to complement their degree with a PR qualification and professionals who are looking to move into PR or use PR to enhance their business.     

Commenting on the announcement, Greg Canty of Fuzion said "We are delighted to be working with Independent Colleges to offer a course that will appeal to both graduates and professionals.  We bring a practical approach to all our courses and we keep all the sessions interactive – these are more like participative workshops than lectures, which make them very enjoyable and create a much better learning environment".  

Garret Doyle, CEO Independent Colleges added; "This relationship with Fuzion is a welcome addition to our portfolio of programmes focused on getting participants into or ahead in their chosen career. Practical PR, especially with a digital focus, gives any business another competitive edge and the employee with this intelligence, far greater prospects for advancement".

The first series of courses will begin in October with another planned for February 2012.

The courses will begin in Tralee in September 2011. This PR for small business course has been running successfully for the last two years in Cork in conjunction with the South Cork Enterprise Board and there is another series starting in October 2011. Fuzion are also operating courses in Social Media for Business for the South Cork Enterprise Board.
