A new programme to support the industry’s need to upskill in the area of Modern Methods of Construction (MMC) has been launched .

The new micro-credential in Strategic Co-ordination and Collaboration for Modern Methods of Construction was developed following intensive engagement with industry to identify the key knowledge and skill gaps in the sector when it comes to the use of this developing area of construction.  

The programme is highly practical and ensures that participants acquire the knowledge and develop the necessary skills to effectively deliver an MMC project in Ireland.  It covers project critical areas such as project managing with design freeze, commercial relationships and structures, and how to create a collaborative culture.

“Modern Methods of Construction is a key component in helping the construction industry meet Government’s ambitious targets for housing, as well as the broader commercial requirements of our economy. The development of this new programme will greatly boost Ireland’s Modern Methods of Construction capability and support the delivery of both the National Development Plan and Housing for All strategy.” 

Paul Healy, Chief Executive, Skillnet Ireland said:  

“This new programme developed in collaboration with Construction Professionals Skillnet and Griffith College is a major step in delivering the capabilities for the roll-out of MMC projects across Ireland. It is also a powerful example of what is possible when we bring industry and higher education together to tackle complex challenges”. 

Tom Parlon, CEO, CIF said:  

“The Construction Industry Federation welcome the response to industry need that this new programme brings. Upskilling is always important, however, it is absolutely critical at the moment in supporting the industry in its response to Government plans.”
