NUI Galway Students’ Union Launches Practical Training for Students

NUI Galway Students’ Union today launched their Life Skills courses for the 2017/18 academic year. Since 2009 the Students’ Union has been running a wide range of subsidised courses for the 17,500 students of NUI Galway with the aim of increasing their practical knowledge. These courses help to improve the employment prospects of students during and after college by boosting their CV’s. The courses also teach them important life skills including how to save lives.

Students’ Union President Lorcán Ó Maoileannaigh said: “We are delighted to announce details of our Life Skills courses for the year ahead. Having attended these courses myself I know first-hand how invaluable the knowledge I gained has been. Whether it’s learning how to help someone who may be suicidal or gaining the skills to administer CPR. All of these courses help to provide a well-rounded education for our students whilst also helping them to make their CV’s stand out from the crowd when looking for jobs.”

The courses on offer from the Students’ Union for the 2017/18 academic year include:

  • Applied Suicide Intervention Skills (ASIST)
  • Sign Language
  • Mixed Martial Arts for Self Defence
  • Cardiac First Responder Course
  • Manual Handling Training
  • Child Protection Training
  • Yoga
  • Anti-Racism Training
  • Disclosure Training with Galway Rape Crisis Centre
