Chevron College acquires Oiliúna Training, set to create 50 jobs

County Wexford Chamber welcomes the news that eLearning provider Chevron College has said it will be creating 50 new jobs in the coming years following its acquisition of a Dublin training company.

Chevron College currently employs more than 100 staff and has bought Oiliúna Training, which operates from a training centre in Blanchardstown.

Healthcare, childcare and renewable energy are the key topics on which Chevon currently delivers its certified training programmes to over 5,000 students every year.

Oiliúna Training has been providing state-funded further education for over two decades in the areas of business, management and IT.

Speaking about the acquisition, President of Chevron College, Karl Fitzpatrick said today: “Oiliúna Training is a hugely successful provider in the training space and has built an excellent reputation for delivering innovative and high-quality training programmes to its learners.”

It is understood new programmes will be developed for delivery in the areas of robotics, virtual and augmented reality, artificial intelligence, data analytics, and cyber-security.

Mr Fitzpatrick described the move as “an exciting growth opportunity” for Chevron College, which previously bought an English language college in 2020 and secured approval from Quality and Qualifications Ireland last year as a higher education provider.
