why us getreskilled

If you’re spending money on an education program, make sure you choose one you’ll finish!

With every GetReskilled ONLINE program;

  1. You’ll have a dedicated course leader who stays with you throughout the course.
  2. We release only one week’s worth of material at a time and then MANUALLY check your progress at the end of every week to make sure that you are keeping up with your work.
  3. Your course leader will email or telephone you if it looks like you’re starting to fall behind. They will work with you to develop a study plan to get you back on schedule and finish the course.

Here are some other great reasons you should choose GetReskilled.

We believe anyone of any age can change careers and learn new skills

It’s a common opinion these days that if you are in your 40s or 50s or even in your 30s, you are too old or it’s too difficult and expensive to change careers.

Our goal at GetReskilled is to challenge this notion. We have been helping people make a mid-career change into the pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturing industries for over 10 years and the 3,600 plus people we’ve re-trained, challenge the idea that you’re too old to start something new.

Our programs are recognized by the world’s leading blue-chip pharmaceutical manufacturers. They are supported by governments in both Ireland (through the Springboard Program) and Singapore (via the WDA) – two of the world’s major pharmaceutical manufacturing hubs. And our academic programs are accredited by Technological University Dublin, Ireland.

We are an Irish/American company that grew out of DPS Engineering. DPS Engineering has been designing and building pharmaceutical manufacturing plants for the world’s leading companies for over 45 years and we incorporate that real-world expertise into our courses to ensure that our courses are industry-relevant, practical and give you the best chance of career success.
