About First Polymer Training Skillnet

Welcome to First Polymer Training Skillnet

First Polymer Training (FPT) Skillnet operates as a training network for the  Polymer Industry in Ireland and is funded under the government’s Skillnet Ireland initiative. The aim of First Polymer Training Skillnet is to deliver training that is focused on the specific needs of the Polymer Industry and includes certification and development.

Initiated by Polymer Technology Ireland,  First Polymer Training Skillnet’s objective is to provide technical training to polymer processors, both at our centre in Athlone and in-company as required. Our administrative and course centre is now located at 7  Centre  Court, Blyry Business and Commercial Park, Athlone.

A full range of plastics processing equipment is available, see here for all of the details. Having a full range of plastics processing equipment on site allows FPT Skillnet to deliver intensive hands-on training.

First Polymer Training Skillnet focuses on supporting those in employment within the Polymer Industry.

How can we meet your company’s needs?

First Polymer Training Skillnet organises a calendar of courses which are delivered at our centre in Athlone. These courses are advertised regularly. However, if your company has specific needs we can design a course to meet those needs or modify an existing course to deliver in-company.

Opening Hours
Our office is open from 9.15am to 5.00pm Monday – Friday.
