Beckinridge Training & Development

Clifton House, Lower Fitzwilliam Street, Dublin City South, Dublin, Ireland

Beckinridge specialises in delivering high quality training to the Corporate, SME and Government Sectors.  Established in 1993 the company has gained an excellent reputation for high quality training in these areas.

Our mission is to supply high quality training that has an emphasis on skills transfer and a ‘real world’, practical focus.  We strive to ensure that through our training, delegates return to the workplace with skills they can apply immediately.

The hallmark of any intervention by Beckinridge is our commitment to involvement.  We have developed many ‘hand-held’ training interventions including bespoke induction and reskilling programmes with delegate assessment, in line with company objectives, standards, and deadlines.

Our instructors’ ‘real world’ experience and skills, along with their ability to deliver training in an engaging and entertaining manner, have been fundamental to our continued quality and success.

Also fundamental are the Beckinridge course materials, which are continually updated and are developed with the primary objective of transferring practical knowledge in an efficient way.  The courses are modular and are structured in such a way that periods of theory are supported with practical sessions.

The modularity of our courseware along with the fact that we have complete control of our material means that courses can be tailored for specific in-company requirements.  This has contributed to our continuing success in the delivery of tailored in-company training interventions.
