About this Course

The Irish Medtech Springboard programme was developed specifically to enable unemployed scientists, engineers and technicians of traditional disciplines or equivalent to convert to the Life Sciences Sector.

This programme will help engineers, scientists and technicians from traditional disciplines to cross into the new realms of engineering which are often hi-tech, hi-precision and highly regulated. The Irish Medtech Springboard accredited training is awarded by University of Limerick and DIT/Ibec to impart the requisite skills.
The directed training will be delivered through blended learning (online and classroom days) for 15 weeks.
