Last year I studied the Level 6 Advanced Certificate in Computer Network Technology & Software Systems. Before coming to Monaghan Institute, I was working full time as a Supervisor in Topaz Centra Monaghan.

I enjoyed my time studying at MI. Admittedly at the start I wasn’t fully sure what to expect from the course, but as the weeks went by I started to understand how what I was learning was relevant to how companies and organisations of all sizes manage and control their IT operations and infrastructure. It got me thinking about how the IT department in Topaz worked, so I asked about the possibilities of work placement with the IT department and they were delighted to have me. My work placement was a brilliant way to put the skills I learnt in class each week into practice in a live working environment.

The week after my exams finished, Topaz offered me a full time position within their IT department and I now currently work as an IT Infrastructure & Operations Service Desk Engineer. The skills I learnt while studying this course play a vital role in my day to day tasks, and for that I would like to thank MI Staff for helping me achieve my results.
