MOUNTRATH training company Metac is delighted with the success of its recent Expo Open Day. Held at Metac’s purposely built training facility at Mountrath Enterprise Park, the company exceeded all expectations with over 300 people in attendance at the event recently.

The expo also saw more than 30 top manufacturers and suppliers from the oil, gas and renewable energy industry exhibit on the day.

The celebrity guest speakers were Duncan Stewart (About the House) and Sean Gallagher (Dragon’s Den) who talked to many attendees in great length after they had given their presentations.

Speaking after the event Dominic Dunne, Managing Director, said the day exceeded expectations. Thanking the exhibitors, our guests, installers and the general public who visited us on the day, he said the event showed what makes Metac different why it is “the best in the business.” Mr Dunne said the event could become an annual fixture.

“We’ve had many enquiries from exhibitors and attendees as to whether this will become an annual event; that’s how popular the whole day was,” he said.

The day also provided Metac with the opportunity to promote their new range of certified business and hobby courses. Course trainers were on hand in the evening to talk to prospective participants and explain what was involved etc. Metac is the largest energy training and assessment centre in the UK and Ireland and trains approximately 2,700 people annually.

Metac was set up in 2006 by Mr Dunne, an installer by trade, who saw a gap in the market for a training facility for live and simulated training. The company says its realistic training facilities equip people with practical skills for work. They are nationally recognised by FAS, Bord Gais and OFTEC and others.

Since October 2010, Metac Training has expanded its range of courses to include a wide array of certified business, computers, special needs and hobby courses. Courses run both during the morning and evening.
