Digital Skills Training has been delivered by Kerry College (Monavalley Campus) across three training departments in its National Digital Skills Centre since 1987. Yearlong practical skills courses in Media Production are available in Film & TV production (Broadcast Skills Production), Digital Content Production and Radio Broadcasting.

Together the programmes are considered by industry as the original market leader in practical digital skills-based training, utilising the latest and most up to date technology.

The real-world production training gives learners an opportunity to develop their professional and interpersonal skills. This approach has been the successful blueprint, which we have found gives our learners the complete production training experience. One of the strengths of the course is the trainee/equipment ratio. The National Digital Skills Centre has very strong links with industry by providing them with learners who have a high level of personal and skills competency and understands the language of the business. The National Digital Skills Centre has partnered with other Industry training providers/vendors including Screen Ireland, Gréasán na Meán Skillnet, RED & ARRI in the organization and running of a variety of industry workshops.

The National Digital Skills Centre is home to the 1st  Apple Authorised centre in Education (AATCe) and the 1st Blackmagic Design Training Partner in Ireland.
