Union Training

The Union believes that its members should be given every opportunity to enhance their skills and maximise their potential in their working and personal lives. Therefore, the Union offers members and representatives a wide range of training courses in life skills such as assertiveness and interview techniques as well as training for Union representatives; health and safety training; and workplace issues seminars.

The delivery of training is flexible – with some training courses taking place during the working day and others during the evenings. In order to facilitate as many members as possible, FSU provides training on a regional basis.

In Northern Ireland, FSU is repoonsible for a Union Learning Project which also offers training courses free of charge to members.


The Union's Training Centre in Dublin is a QQI approved training provider.

FSU Senior Industrial Relations and Training Officer, Marian Geoghegan, manages the provision of training within the Union and is grateful for any suggestions, comments or queries from members.

The training courses which are currently available to FSU members are listed under the FSU Courses tab. If you are interested in attending a training course, please register your interest by emailing Zara Nealon at

Although all courses are free of charge to FSU members, considerable costs are involved in their provision. So members who are placed on courses are encouraged to attend all sessions. Information on upcoming training courses will be posted on a regular basis.
