Glossary: Course Glossary


This is the educational institution that currently has responsibility for the provision of Phase 2 apprenticeship training in the trade of construction plant fitting.


Apprenticeship training in Ireland is now standards based (SBA). In other words, it differs from the old time based system in that a defined and agreed standard must be reached by each trainee at the end of each phase of training before they can move on to the next phase.

There are 7 phases of training for CP Fitters. Phases 2, 4 and 6 are "off the job". Phase 2 is delivered in the DDLETB training centre, Baldoyle. Phases 4 and 6 are delivered in the Institute of Technology in Cork.

Phase 2 is of 20 weeks duration, and phases 4 and 6 are of 10 weeks duration each.

Phase 1, Phase 3, Phase 5 and Phase 7 are delivered "on the job" in the apprentices' place of employment.
