DIT Bolton Street, level 7 Degree in Engineering.
Thomas Hanley completed the Leaving Certificate at Virginia College in June 2015 and like so many Leaving Certificate students was unsure of which career path to choose.
After considering a number of courses, Thomas chose the Motor Vehicle Maintenance QQI level 5 course at Cavan Institute. He believed the course would provide him with a number of progression opportunities either to an apprenticeship, QQI level 6 here at Cavan Institute or a Level 7 Degree in DIT.
Thomas believes that the Motor Vehicle Maintenance course at Cavan Institute with its practical aspect also helps the student with other subjects such as electronics, motor vehicle theory, team working and auto electricity
Thomas said "I enjoyed attending Cavan Institute and found the pace and content of classes ideal". Thomas completed the course in May 2016 and attained a Full Award with Distinction in all subjects.
Thomas has now enrolled in DIT Bolton Street where he will study a level 7 Degree in Engineering.
Thomas attributes his achievement in securing a place in DIT to the course content at Cavan Institute so much so that his younger brother Richard has now enrolled for Motor Vehicle Maintenance and has already started his studies here in Cavan Institute.
